“I am 20 weeks pregnant and the pain in my right leg and piriformis is preventing me from working.” Said Heidi, a worried 34 year old who can’t recall a specific event where she hurt herself but she is now experiencing unbearable pain during her pregnancy. She is worried because she only gets 12 weeks off from work and wants to work up until the end of her pregnancy so her entire leave can be spent with her new baby. She’d been suffering from the deep achy pain in her buttock which shoots down her leg when she sits at work. She tosses and turns at night as she just can’t get comfortable no matter how many pillows she uses.

Hi, guys. I wanted to make a quick little video to help a friend out who is having some pretty bad back pain. She's about 21 or 22 weeks pregnant, and her back is just flaring up for the last three days, and it's excruciating. She thinks maybe it was her sciatic nerve or maybe she bruised her back. And so, this is for those pregnant mamas out there who have that intense low back pain and just feel like maybe you can't make it through the end of this pregnancy.
What is harder than losing the post pregnancy weight?
You have a new stress (a magical little one) but still an additional life to protect, nourish and comfort.
You are not getting the 8 hours of sleep that you thrive off of.
You are busy managing your house hold.
You are working.
You are attempting to manage and nurture the important friendships around you and avoid neglecting the best ones.
You have suffered birth injuries or changes that are limiting your ability to kick your weight loss routine into high gear.
And the list goes on….. You might just wait to try to get in shape once you’re done having kids because you are pretty sure you will have another baby so might as well wait until your completely done to tackle the weight.
So where to start?
