Anyone using a maternity belt to relieve pressure? I'm a STM, 8 yrs in between. This pregnancy has not been smooth sailing since the beginning. I found out last week that I currently have Placenta Previa. And now I'm having horrible pains in my pelvic area, more then just round ligament pains. It's like my pelvic area is inflamed almost. I can't stand/walk for long at all before the pains appear and I'm forced to make myself lay on the couch. It's so frustrating! Thankfully Christmas break started today so I'm able to be home and "rest" HA I still have piles of presents to wrap. Looks like daddy will be doing some wrapping....I bet they all end up in bags instead ;-).
So anyways my nurse says it's pressure and I need to A stay off my feet as much as possible, stop getting up and down ect. And B start wearing a maternity belt. I've never tried one and I'm not showing much at all yet. But I guess I will try it to help. Anything to help at this point....
Just wondering if anyone else had to wear one this early and if it helped.
