  • Maybe if you sit and stretch it will help your hips and then take the pressure off your ankles and knees?????

  • Heat helps a lot! If you stretch in the shower you lower the risk of straining, just be careful not to slip. Also, yoga balls are amazing and less than 20$ at walmart. If it's just your hips you're wanting to stretch check out 'pelvic tilts', they're also great for getting baby into proper position for birthing later down the road. Good luck and take it easy.
