Back Cramp — The Bump

Back Cramp

Hey y’all, so I’m pregnant with my first baby 🥰

It’s been a great ride so far. However, about a few nights ago, in my sleep, I had a killer back cramp from my mid back and it leads into my ribs slightly. I had my prenantal visit today and of course doctor just said it’s part of pregnancy. Massaging alleviates it but it returns the next day towards the end of my day. Any recommendations ?

  • Do you have a foam roller? Using mine has been helpful for muscle tension and cramping. I’ve also been seeing a chiropractor and getting massages, which helps some too. :)

    Could be from the loosening in your core as your abdomen expands so your back muscles are doing more work than they're used to. Prenatal yoga can help, especially cat/cow, and if it gets really bad maybe try a chiropractor to make sure it isn't an alignment issue. Stating hydrated and making sure you're getting enough potassium can also help prevent cramping.
