20 Weeks Pregnant
To alleviate backaches caused by your pregnancy, you should try to maintain good posture. Tips to maintain good posture include the following:
- Sit with a footstool or use an ergonomic chair at the office
- Avoid standing for too long
- Sleep with a small pillow under your side at the waist
- Lift things with your legs instead of your back.
At this point in your pregnancy, it is a good time to look into childbirth classes.
As your partner begins to look into the various childbirth classes available in your area, you should tell her that you would like to attend them with her. While some spouses feel reluctant to go, others are very excited. If you are feeling a little reluctant, remember that you will get to ask the instructor lots of questions and meet other spouses who probably feel just like you do.
