  • Every pregnancy is different, maybe you just got off easy last time (I'm convinced that I did!). Mention it to your doctor, though, just in case he or she thinks it's a symptom of everything. Otherwise, go ahead and slump away, you need to be comfortable! :)

  • No, this was normal with my kids. What helped me though was to lay on my back in the floor with my legs propped up on the couch. It takes the pressure off your back.
