this one

Literally the first one that showed up when I searched it so it was a risky purchase but I like that it has multiple belts for stages. Also, it’s cheap. My logic was “if it’s stupid at least it’s cheap”

If you sister has a healthy pregnancy, and is able to remain active till the end, she won't need much more than a supportive friend and a sympathetic ear while she vents about how much pregnancy sucks. :) But also, backrubs and foot rubs feel AMAZING in the third trimester!

Organize a baby shower for her. (Protip: asking for frozen meals for the mom-to-be for postpartum use in lieu of cute baby shoes or other junk can be a lifesaver).

Discuss her birth plan with her, and get informed about the whole process. Does she want a natural birth?

When she goes into labor, she will need somebody to go to the hospital with her and stay with her until at least half a day after the birth. Will you be able to do that? Start working your fingers out, they will need to be extra-strong for her to squeeze during contractions!


This is the most important part. This is where you step in like the awesome hero you are, and be a total lifesaver.

The new mom will be practically bed-bound for at least two weeks after giving birth, and this is if everything goes perfectly with the birth. For c-sections, excessive tearing, hemhorraging or other complications during childbirth, her rest period will be longer.

So she will need someone to take care of meals, household chores, and for the first few days after the birth someone to help with basic personal hygiene (walk her to the toilet/shower and back, run a sitz bath for her). It will help her greatly if you can move in with her and take care of this stuff.

Do not listen if she says she feels fine. I gave birth last week and felt seriously great in less than 48 hours... so I thought I'd vacuum my carpets. BAD IDEA. I hemhorraged a great deal of blood and threw my back off so badly I was totally bed-bound for two days after. It's not even like my vacuum is all that heavy!

So... Basic rule: for the first two weeks after the birth, make her get lots of rest and just care for/nurse the baby.

Especially if she has a c-section but even if she does not, a belly binder is an ENORMOUS comfort for new moms. It offers much-needed lumbar support and holds in a jiggly belly, preventing hernias. It also helps lessen the pain of a cramping uterus. Bonus: it helps return bellies and widened hips to a pre-pregnancy state quicker! I have been using this binder day and night, and can strongly recommend it. Be sure to buy one size down. Start her using it immediately after birth.

Don't sweat the babycare too much. Babies don't need much, especially in the first few weeks. All they do is eat and sleep and poop and burp. The new mom can be in charge of most of it, though she will probbaly appreciate help with the diaper changes (and feeding if the baby will be bottle-fed) occasionally. Go with whatever works organically for your situation. You might need to take over a little more (diaper changes, mixing up formula, cleaning the breast pump and bottles, whatever applies) if the mom had a c-section or complicated birth.

{{hugs}} and good luck! You are AWESOME for stepping up to the plate like this.

u/TwinPeaks2017 · 6 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

Wrist braces are tricky. Here's a video on how to KT tape a wrist . It didn't offer immediate relief or even feel all that supportive but it did help a lot in the long run. You can order wrist braces and wraps fairly cheaply online even if your Dr doesn't have it in stock. It can be just as cheap as an insurance copay.

With my hips I get snapping hip and instability. I do an SI brace or an SI joint KT tape.

Ok shoulders I am going to have to come back later and do a whole post on, because my shoulders including blades are the absolute freakin worst and I have a million ways to deal with those. And the neck all I have are these stretches which have helped me tremendously and then a posture brace like this one. I hope this helps and I will post on the shoulders tomorrow at the latest.

The number one thing that helps me besides bracing, rest, and taping is ice. I have an ice pack that straps to my body and doubles as a heat pack.

I know you're limited on money and this is a lot, but I bought all these things piece by piece as things progressed. If I were to rec money on anything, it would be the ice pack and KT tape.


u/blobbytables · 6 pointsr/fitpregnancy

This belly band helped me not feel like I have to pee so much when I run: It keeps everything compressed and supported so baby isn't sloshing around against my bladder. I'm 21w and will probably need to stop running soon due to round ligament pain, but at least it won't be the "need to pee" feeling that stops me.

u/JNA9057 · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

My friends all swear by the belly bandit brand, but I purchased this one from Amazon: Chongerfei 3 in 1 Postpartum Support - Recovery Belly/Waist/Pelvis Belt Shapewear Slimming Girdle, Beige, One Size

u/EmilyofIngleside · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps


Did you know that there are maternity support belts with "groin compression"? Here's an example: Baby Belly Band -

Maybe your doctor already suggested that (or ruled it out), but they're not well-known, so I thought I mention it.

u/d8911 · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

Here's an old post of mine:
>This is the one I got

>I have a hypermobile sacroiliac joint so the belt does wonders for stability. It also feels like it generally holds my hips together. Whenever I take it off I feel like my pelvis and hips are going to slip apart. My physical therapist suggested it for the loose SI joint while I'm pregnant.

>Here's a good photo of just how low you wear it

u/PancakesForTurtles · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I bought a cheap velcro one on Amazon, and I do love it, it helps immediately and immensely, however, adjusting the velcro is pretty difficult, so it's a little awkward to wear. It bends when I sit down and pokes into my skin and I have to keep adjusting it. You pay for what you get, though. Looking at the diagrams, though, it appears I'm not wearing it right coughs

This is what I have

u/spencerdog · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

The one I use is called Serola. I find though it doesn't help much with sitting but helps with walking around quite a bit. Sitting for long periods killed me. I ended up leaving my desk job on short term disability around week 34. Alternating sitting/standing/laying down at home works best. Lots of pelvic floor exercises. Also just keeping your legs together as much as possible. I find rolling over in bed much easier is i squeeze the pillow between my legs tightly. Getting out of the car I keep my legs together and swing around to get out. Really just thinking about basic movements like this has helped the pain a lot. Also the pubis/SI joints can move out easily so avoid anything too heavy especially weight being carried unevenly. (For example a laundry basket on one hip) Try and keep your hips centered as much as you can. Hope this helps, here is a link to the belt I use.

u/letstalkaboutlaw · 4 pointsr/fitpregnancy

ChongErfei 3 in 1 Postpartum Support Recovery Belly Wrap Waist/Pelvis Belt Body Shaper Postnatal Shapewear,Plus Size Beige

Highly recommend this one!

u/kiln · 4 pointsr/BB30

I was actually going to write a post sharing my favorites, but I just hadn't gotten around to it yet!

I have this support belt and it is awesome. I had a wimpier one in my first pregnancy and it was definitely inferior. I think starting with the support early helps reduce problems later.

I also got the pregnancy support tank and it is great. It's not hardcore, but it is really nice support. Good for wearing all day. I was interested in this one too, but it only goes up to a size large, and I needed an XL. But I like the cut of it.

Good luck. Let us know what works for you!

u/staticfingertips · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps
u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I am 36.5 weeks and also have a herniation in the same spot.

Buy yourself THIS maternity belt (highly reviewed on amazon). You'll thank yourself as you get bigger. I wear it every day and if I ever forget I can tell immediately in the difference in pain. Before my bump was super big I just wore it when doing a lot of walking/standing, now I wear it all the time.

I have been going to physical therapy throughout the pregnancy and that has helped a lot. My therapist is actually a prenatal/pelvic floor PT specialist, too. I have pregnancy approved excercises that I do to strengthen my back and hip muscles, which help a lot but don't get me wrong - you're in for some pain and discomfort that will likely be worse than the average pregnant person's because of your situation. My physical therapist also recommended I get this Sacroiliac joint belt as because of my herniation my pelvis is misaligned (or maybe my pelvis misaligned caused my herniation, who knows) and therefore she said I was at extra risk for SPD. Lo and behold, I started getting SPD symptoms as early as 11 weeks!

So now, I wear the SI joint belt and the maternity belly brace daily. Before the past month or so, I just wore them when I was walking/standing a lot (my husband and I refer to the combo as my 'sausage casing,' it's hilarious).

u/onenineone · 3 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

Serola Sacroiliac Belt, Large Fits 40-Inch to 46-Inch hip

Here's the type I have, it's just Velcro and it puts a bit of pressure. It made my pain stop after the first 15min!

u/amacatokay · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Yep! I bought two for work and they're a godsend for my hips and back, and for lifting the belly up a little bit. I got: and this one: I like and use both of them. The first one is a wider band, and has held up well. The second one has rolled a little bit from when I'm sitting down, but I still prefer the way it fits and has multiple adjustable straps. You can always order two and return the one you don't care for! Definitely try one though, I wish I'd ordered mine sooner :)

u/-LaserEyes · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

This is the one I bought:

I do feel like it really helps, but I just don't like it in general. Uncomfortable when wearing for long, and I hate all the Velcro. I wish the ends tapered better because if I'm not careful the prickly Velcro sticks out and sticks to things/itches. Still better than the discomfort without it I suppose...

Hoping to see suggestions here for others.

u/PinkChubbyMonkey · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

This is the one that my midwife recommended for me. I have found it helpful.

u/Mrs-Toad · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I was wondering the same thing and was recommended two

And then one on Etsy by a shop called “The art of wellness” which I can’t link for some reason

u/twoblueshoes · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Thanks! TBH I really shouldn't complain, mine is the serola belt and it's really low profile in the scheme of things. My issue is specific to my SI joints and no brace is really gonna keep everything in place by itself, so the belt serves as a support. If I ever have to have surgery I'm guessing I will get something much more substantial!

u/Mannich · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Which support belt are you getting? I got this one in Large. We'll see how it goes. I have pretty rough round ligament pain along with the SPD, so even if it doesn't help the groin, it will help the RLP, I hope.

I mentioned it to my Dr, and she recommended managing the discomfort with Tylenol, and to talk to her again if it becomes unmanageable. We'll see. :/

u/sammg37 · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

I use an SI belt (specifically, my PT recommended this one) when I sleep, and I think it's been helpful. I have a lot of sternum and clavicle pain, especially in the mornings. Look into costochondritis - the cartilage that holds your ribcage together may be inflamed or irritated from hypermobility. My PT told me that commonly, the sternum and clavicle are some of the first things to start shifting around when your pelvis/SI joints are shifting. They're definitely connected. To help with the chest pain, I've started sleeping with a teddy bear that I can wedge under my chest (I'm a side sleeper) to prevent my shoulders from collapsing at night. It's been really helpful.

u/taylor-in-progress · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

This helps my hips a ton. I wear it under my clothes and it's not noticeable at all

OPTP SI-LOC Support Belt - Small/Medium (670) - Low Back and Pelvic Pain Relief

I'm also going to PT

u/Jorose85 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Agree with the foam roller for IT band. You can also use a tennis or lacrosse ball to massage your piriformis - sit on the ball and roll until you find the sore area like with the foam roller.

For sciatica, I find that wearing this particular support belt is super helpful. The trick is to wear it horizontal - like parallel to the ground - around your hips rather than around your lower back.

u/SungoldTomato · 2 pointsr/Mommit

I have the hospital abd binder, But it rides up and pinches above my incision. So a few days ago I gave up wearing it. Are the knockoff Amazon binders worth it?

Chongerfei 3 in 1 Postpartum Support Recovery Belly Wrap Waist/Pelvis Belt Body Shaper

Also swallowing my pride and ordered high waisted, mild compression underwear to avoid friction on my scar. The same kind I made fun of my mom for wearing. Lol.

u/so_untidy · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

The binder made a huge difference for me! It basically compressed and stabilized so everything didn’t strain as much when changing positions.

I got something like this at the hospital:

Sorry for the formatting!

I could definitely tell it made a difference for me.

u/toefoofoo · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

My baby was a low rider so I invested in a belt in second trimester. It worked great for me. Not sure this is what you want or need, but I used this product and have no complaints. I am not sure your size and if that is a factor in what belt type you need, so I apologize if this is not helpful.... but I personally liked my simple, easy belt. :) Edit to add: relieved hip pain as well.

u/SatelliteCat · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Okay. Baby brain, had to actually google it. The brand is Serola. Here's an amazon link:

I'm on mobile in the bathtub currently, so my apologies if that doesn't link easily! It's an expensive belt, so if you can get it through insurance, that's the way to go. I have two and alternate them. This one is nice because you do have the option of wearing it against your skin( mine is too sensitive) and its washable. I alternate between two of them. I have one for work and one for home/sleep.

Also, for all the ladies on this sub, women's health physical therapy is a thing! They are going to help you out better than any regular PT like myself, especially if you have issues postpartum!!! I went to one myself because this pain was out of my league!

u/vroomvroom404 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Are you going to a physical therapist? I have sciatica and several herniated discs in my back. I've been going once a month up until recently, and we've upped to once every two weeks (due to increased pain bc my body is finally changing - I didn't show until late, I'm 24 weeks now and still barely showing). We expect to be once, or even twice, a week by the time I'm delivering.

Edit to add: My PT had me get a SI joint band (I got this one from amazon that I wear whenever I walk long distances - so I can still take our pupper for a walk and stuff. It's magic - if I forget to put it on I can hardly walk a mile, if I wear it I can walk however far I want. It's to help combat the relaxin spreading my hips apart, which causes pain when you do a lot of walking bc they're out of alignment.

u/crystal2435 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

It really depends on the type of problems you are having. Diastases issue? The recommendation is a standard pregnancy belt. If you are having pelvic and sacral instability then an SI belt is probably recommended. They do make a modified verson of the two molded into one such as this one. Hope that helps a bit.

I actually have a form of both. Feel free to PM me if you have more questions.

u/raftsonraftsonrafts · 2 pointsr/TumblrInAction

>Now, if being fat causes joint problems

Here's a fun medical paper: Benefits of Massive Weightloss on symptoms, systematic inflammation and cartilage turnover in obese patients with knee arthritis

>Weight loss
resulted in a significant increase in N-terminal propeptide
of type IIA collagen levels (+32%; p=0.002), a biomarker
of cartilage synthesis, and a significant decrease in
cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) (−36%;
p<0.001), a biomarker of cartilage degradation.

tl;dr when you're obese, your cartilage degrades much more rapidly than when you are healthy-sized. losing weight strongly correlates to decreased cartilage degradation and increased cartilage synthesis in your joints.

so even if you have a genetic collagen defect, weight loss greatly reduces cartilage degradation, increases cartilage regrowth, and basically better preserves what little cushioning of the joints your defective collagen grants you.

>Yet every time I have needed a brace or support for a joint (because I have a genetic collagen defect) I cannot find anything in my size.

Well, in one second on amazon I found an SI belt that, in its xxx-large size, fits a 58-64" hip, and costs <$40. 60"-64" seems like it's the cut-off hip size for lots of products (ex: Lane Bryant sizing seems to end at 60", with a pant size of 32), most likely because it's hard to find a large enough market for those greater sizes.

Even the morbidly obese market (BMI >40) is "small" at only 4% of Americans. I looked up a borderline morbidly obese person's body (5'6" woman, 250 lbs, puts her at BMI=40.3); she wears a size 20 pant size which gives her a 48" hip in LB sizing, so she would find the xxx-large SI belt much too large. I then looked up a 450 lb woman who self-reports that she wears size 26 pants. That still puts her at a 54" hip, so she's still well-covered by the SI belt I found on Amazon. So how heavy are we talking that your hips are larger than 64"? I don't mean that in an accusative way, but in a curious "what is your weight so we can find out what percentage of the population fits into this group to determine the market size?" way.

I'm guessing this TITP poster must either be one of a few thousand people in the US who is heavier than 500 pounds (I pulled that number out of my ass, I have no idea how many people are heavier than 500 lbs, but I'm assuming it must be a very very small number? I don't know), or is exaggerating that nothing comes in her size, or is acting as if nothing comes in her size because the products that are made in her size are far too cost prohibitive?

u/ember4212 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I got this one but in black. I'm not sure it'd be comfortable for all-day use because it is sort of stiff, but just for working out, it was great.

u/BettySpaghetti · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

It's one that goes under the belly, but no top strap

This one. Helps me sit up straight and takes the weight off the painful part.

3 in 1 Postpartum Support Recovery Belly Waist Pelvis Belt Body Shaper Postnatal Shapewear (4XL plus for weight over 190lbs, beige)
There's regular and plus size and it's only $20.

u/Grimhilde · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I did a search for this topic just last week. A better option is checking r/beyondthebump for post partum belly bands. A lot of women here are pregnant with their first now, and haven't used one yet.

I ordered 2 different kinds (I'm 38+5, so I haven't personally used them yet).

I order a 3 piece set off Amazon:
ChongErfei 3 in 1 Postpartum Support Recovery Belly Wrap Waist/Pelvis Belt Body Shaper Postnatal Shapewear,Plus Size Beige

This I will use after much of the swelling and water weight goes down.

I also purchase a bengkung belly binding wrap off of Etsy for directly after the birth. I'm kind of a granola munching hippie, so the bengkung might not be anything you're interested in, but they are the MOST adjustable belly binder you can have because you create a new bind every day. They are really good for supporting the hips and lower back while you realign your center of gravity, once your belly is gone. They can be very inexpensive if you don't need the fancy ones.

u/MercyMay · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Laying down is the worst for me too. I've started dreading the nights because I know I am going to wake up about a 100 times to change sides because my hip pain is so bad. Sometimes a pillow between the knees helps, and sometimes it seems to make things worse. I usually end up switching throughout the night. I always use something to prop my stomach though.

A hot water bottle between the thighs helps a bit with the pain (either while sitting or in bed), and I bought this belt thing and wearing it (around the hips) during the day seems to help with the nighttime pain. Also, I've found that I actually do feel better in bed on days I've been more active, even though I do get sore and tired easy from walking around.

The exercises from this study seem to help a bit too.

u/smembot · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I actually asked my doctor about seeing a physical therapist, because we have a center associated with my university clinic and it's only a $15 co-pay per visit. She recommended trying the belt first and so far that is doing the trick. I just bought a super cheapie one. I'll definitely switch to the PT if that stops being effective.

u/frivoluxo · 2 pointsr/ChronicPain

This is the belt I use and my Physiotherapist wears this one too (she's also hypermobile which is why she specializes in it)...

It works best if you wear it against your skin, under your underwear and clothes. It fits best under sweatpants or loose pants. Mine doesn't fit under jeans or pants without stretch. The Physio told me NEVER to wear it while sleeping or lying down, but you can wear it the rest of the time... especially while sitting on the couch for long periods or while doing housework or grocery shopping, etc. Don't make it too tight, just snug. Give the belt at least a week, adjust it slightly up or down, or tighter or looser until you find a spot that feels comfortable. Some days I wear mine a bit higher, some days a bit lower. If you have Salonpas gel or patches, or Biofreeze, or IcyHot.. try rubbing it on all the spots that hurt the most. The tingly cold feeling helps distract from the pain, if nothing else. Ice packs are good and heating pads.

I’m not sure where you live, but in the US doctors are not taught much about SI joints. I have found that the Orthopedic surgeons never really consider anything but your spine. It’s as if the pelvis doesn’t exist to them. I was checked for a labral tear as well, but there was nothing on the MRIs/Xrays. If you can find a Physiatrist/Osteopathic doctor they would be the ones to know about SI joints and hypermobility and can probably refer you to the right kind of physical therapist. I hope you find some pain relief soon!

u/sarcasmdetectorbroke · 2 pointsr/AprilBumpers2018
u/kama_s · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Same boat as you with big baby and tons of pelvic and pubic pain. This is what my pelvic PT recommended:

u/amslucy · 2 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

Try an SI belt? I've been using the Serola one, and it helps with low back pain... and it also makes my legs feel a lot stronger, if that makes sense. The first time I put it on I kind of felt like I had discovered a new superpower (the feeling didn't last: I got used to it, but it was really cool for the first few days I had the brace).

The downside is that the brace is a bit uncomfortable and chafes a bit near the bones at the front of the pelvis (iliac crest, maybe?), even over clothing. I don't know if that's just this belt, or if all of them do that. It's also kind of unflattering - causes muffin top and weird bulges. But it does work, and it works well enough that I'm willing to put up with the negatives.

u/bcraven1 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I had a surprise c section and it was a bit traumatizing. If its scheduled I'm sure you'll fare much better.

-BELLY BINDER. The hospital will give you one, and I recommend ordering one off of Amazon too. ETA: This is the binder I used

-a pillow to hold to your tummy when you laugh, or cough.

-set alarms on your phone to schedule taking meds. I didn't need to finish off all my pain pills. The first week was the worst, and it got a little better each day.

-I personally had no issues pooping (YAY) but take the colace and get a squatty potty or footstool.

-Uber Eats gift card, no one is cooking. Order in. lol

-Check with your doctor, but once you are fully healed, like after 6 weeks, start massaging your scar. This is supposed to help reconnect the nerves and reduce scar tissue swelling.

My Dr did a great job on the surgery. I had 50 hours of labor and had surgery at 1150pm. The scar is barely visible really. I did have some pains for months after which I heard is fairly common. If you have pains or discomfort, it usually subsides before the year is over. Also, take advantage of the high-waist everything fad. lol high waist panties, high waist leggings, high waist jeans, high waist lingerie....

u/brewtourist · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

That's about when mine started. This belt has been a life saver. Wearing it, it's like my back never hurt to start. When I don't wear it, ugh. It's pretty instant.

u/87percentKat · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I got a cheap one on Amazon, works fine for me. Link below, I think someone on here recommended it.

When I go to the bathroom, I just pull it up. I also prefer wearing it with a dress vs. my full-panel maternity pants, though it works with the pants too.

Finally, I found that the belt really helps when I'm standing or walking, but actually hurts to wear while sitting. So during most of the day, when I'm primarily sitting, I don't wear it, so bathroom runs aren't an issue at all.

u/daisypushers · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I'm usually too tired to respond to any threads when I read here at night lol but I wanted to respond to you because we're the same size pre-pregnancy, and I also am all belly (although I've gained 27 pounds so not truly all belly, but it feels and looks like it!). I'm still working out and hiking with the dogs so I had to get a maternity belt to support this huge bump and this is the one I got: (Gabrialla Maternity Support Belt). I bought it in a medium and it's perfect. It's velcro so pretty easy to be adjusted to fit your size.

I will say that maternity belts aren't that comfortable to wear when sitting down; I don't wear mine to work because I have a desk job and I can't sit in it all day. I do wear it when being active at all though, even if it's just light cleaning or running errands. It really helps!

u/delicat · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I ordered this one from Amazon but it isn't here yet and I haven't had my baby - so I can't tell you if it's any good. It just had good reviews and was in my price range.

u/isadelia · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I found it pretty cheap on Amazon. I went with this one as it was recommended for activity, and I'm still running 5 times a week. The real test will be wearing it tomorrow for a run. Medela also has one that looked good but reviews said it had a habit of rolling down a lot.

u/jedi_bean · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I bought this one on amazon:

I can't tell you if it fits or works yet, but it came recommended by a blogger I follow on IG.

u/awholenoobworld · 1 pointr/ehlersdanlos

...And this is the SI joint belt I use. I just put it over yoga pants or leggings when I'm working from home.

u/hapa79 · 1 pointr/CautiousBB

I bought a support belt, which was very helpful and I highly recommend! I know that helped me tack some extra weeks on there. If I'd been more consistent with it I think I could've gone even longer, but I'm glad I kept it up at least a little bit.

u/FlyingDutchmansWife · 1 pointr/ttcafterloss

It's You Babe Best Cradle, Medium (150-220 Pounds)

I bought this one. He recommended this brand specifically. There was a noticeable difference if I didn't wear it. That or non-supportive shoes. Ultra boosts and this cradle all day! Ha and compression socks.

u/tahnaprice · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I've heard good things about this one :)

u/hersheykiss7761 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I ordered this from Amazon, I liked it, but it had draw backs. You can see it under clothing if you wear a tight shirt and sometimes it would rise up if I was getting up and down a lot. I honestly found it best to get spanx, I got 2-3 sizes and kept going down a size as I felt like I could breath too easily again.

u/Stitch-a-holic · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

This is the one that I have. It's nice because of the double adjustment straps. I've found in the last few weeks that wearing it below my bump has helped not just back pain, but also my hip discomfort. You can snug it up pretty nicely and it's still comfy.

u/jlgero09 · 1 pointr/gastricsleeve

It’s actually called an abdominal binder. I must have made up “belly band!” Got mine from amazon and it’s really helping.

u/LowOnHope · 1 pointr/parentsofmultiples

Gabrialla Elastic Maternity Support Belt (Medium Support), Size Medium, White

This support belt helped on my back but by 31 weeks not a whole lot helps. At the height of the pain I was taking three baths a day and that helped. Even better if she can float in a pool and feel weightless.

u/pleasesendbrunch · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Get thee to a physical therapist ASAP. Mine helped me manage it, especially by showing me how to move to reduce the pain and exercises to gently aid in my alignment. She also recommended this belt which I wish I'd bought way earlier in the pregnancy because it really did help. I tried to jimmy rig other things to hold my hips together but nothing worked like this.

The good news is I was really afraid it was going to make labor worse, but it wasn't an issue for me at all once I was in labor. And now postpartum it's totally fine.

I have the Gabrialla and like it a lot, particularly for running. I have to take it off when I do squats or if I'm going to do a lot of bending over, though, so it's not an all-around exercise support belt (at least not in my experience).

Serola Sacroiliac Belt, Large Fits 40-Inch to 46-Inch hip

This helped my hips a lot. Recommended by a physical therapist, she said to get this one, not any of the knock off/ cheaper ones but I wore it all the time for awhile & now just when I work out or my hip is hurting. Helps shorten the ligament, does not replace muscle strength.

I also just ordered this maternity belt that some runners say helps with the round ligament pain during runs. Looking forward to testing it out when it arrives on Monday.

I think all three therapies probably helped. I didn't trust chiropractors going in, but after each session I did feel more stable, so it did something. The massage was nice but probably the least directly helpful, but who knows. The physical therapy has helped with some other hip pain actually, but that one is slow going for the tailbone pain. No matter what I figure strengthening the pelvic floor is good in general. Oh, and it's important to find doctors that know how to deal with pregnant women. I had to ask around for those recommendations.

This is the one I have but you tie it around your hips instead what's shown in the picture. It's not too expensive so I would just get it. And the coccyx cushion just makes it so that it's possible to sit. Without it I would start feeling pain within seconds of sitting. But I've noticed it's still not good to sit on it for long periods of time.

The techniques in this video are life saving for me when my SI is out, which is pretty often.

I also got an . SI belt recently and its surprisingly helpful. I often sublux my SI joint when I'm cleaning so I've started preemptively wearing the belt. You wear it wrapped around where your back dimples are (or where they would be if you had them). This is the one I got:

Good luck! Be gentle with yourself! In the longer term, doing core work with my PT doing the Muldowney method has been helpful in preventing SI subluxations.

I had this around 17 weeks, primarily on the right side and could barely walk. I wore a si-loc hip belt I found on amazon 24/7, did some core strengthening, went to chiro and acupuncture, and it eased up and went away completely after a couple weeks. 37 weeks now and so thankful for just regular general aches and pains. I remember sobbing to my husband terrified that the pain wouldn't go away! I'm so sorry and I hope yours resolves soon!

I put 1.25 teaspoons of salt in a liter of water. I drink 2-3 of these a day.

Get an abdominal compression wrap. Such as this one:

NYOrtho Abdominal Binder Lower...

Is there a chance of you getting better? Or worse? Yes to both. It sucks.

The abdominal compression will help a lot. Like--I went from not being able to stand for more than 2 mins to going back to work (I'm a personal trainer and work 20 hours a week).

I had that towards the end of my first trimester, it stopped for a bit, and now it's flaring up again. I found that a pregnancy support belt (like this one) helped me quite a bit.

I actually also found it very useful for another reason - I just started wearing maternity pants, but they have a bad habit of getting loose and sagging. Strapping this belt on top helps them stay up!
