Thanks again ladies, I really appreciate it! I am learning so much! As for acupuncture, that would probably be my first line of defense if positioning becomes a problem. I used it to help me get pg and feel that it was wonderful at helping my lining and egg quality in addition to giving me 45 minutes of relaxation each week...who doesn't need that after teaching 24 9-y-o everyday!
I have to say the whole posture thing is worrisome to me...being off for the summer is what is causing me to worry. All I do is sleep most of the day...I don't know who said in the 2nd tri you'll have lots of energy, but I sure don't...I'm always dog tired. And I can't only lay/sleep on my left side all the time...I get to sore. So I usually spend the first few minutes on my back until my spine relaxes and then lay on my left side and alternate btwn left and right throughout the night...once morning comes I rotate btwn left and back...moving all these pillows all night long is quite the workout...I totally miss being a stomach sleeper.
I also spend a lot of time in this computer chair reading and researching everything and I'm sure that is not the best position for me either. Who knows what Sept will bring when I get back to work...I know I will be spending a lot of time sitting b/c my legs swell often...I've already planned to crawl around when I get home for added measure...
All that I read about posture and correct sitting positions just sound so uncomfortable, and I am all about needing to be comfortable.
When I did yoga pre-pg we always started off each lesson sitting on the edge of our pillows so our pelvis was tilted and our knees were lower than our hips...is this a good sitting position? This one I can manage comfortably...
So am I doomed? Are all of you perfectly postured pregnant people?
Thanks again from a totally neurotic pregnant 1st timer!
