Hi all. How do you get out of bed? I cant seem to get out without feeling a strain in my stomach- its like Im doing a sit up. Hope Im not doing harm to babs. Whats the correct way to get out?

the best way for you to get out of bed is to swing your legs out first and then just push your self up, it puts a lot less strain that sit up first hope this makes sense eta: you should hold your stomach as you push yourself up.

In our 1st anti natal class midwife was telling us to put our hands to the side and use as leverage IYKWIM so as not to twist our back or stomach muscles, and swing your legs around the side gently. HTH
