This was me at 30 weeks.
Though I know that moms who's babies are more tucked in have their own set of discomforts, unpleasant results of the way I carry are back pain, hip pain, and nerve pain. I also get cervical pain in the third trimester.
And, this pregnancy, for the first time, I've been diagnosed with pubic symphesis disorder, or PSD. Which, I've discovered, can be very, very painful.
I've always wanted some sort of pregnancy support belt, and was thrilled when It's You Babe agreed to send me the Prenatal Cradle Mini Cradle for review. I received my Mini Cradle at 32 weeks.
The day after after receiving the Mini Cradle I loaded Mercy into the umbrella stroller to go to story time at the library. I didn't make it around the block before getting a terrible stitch in my side. So I promptly put on my new Mini Cradle. I made it all the way to the library (about 1 mile) without the pain I'd become accustomed to!
And now that my PSD is worsening by the day I wear the Mini Cradle almost constantly. Walking would be impossible without it, and though I still have pain when wearing it, it isn't debilitating like it is without it.
I highly recommend the Prenatal Cradle Mini Cradle by It's You Babe! It relieves much of the pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy while also being low profile. I can wear it with any combination of undergarments and outer clothing, and it's a breeze to take on and off. My only recommendation would be additional rows of eyes for the hook and eye closure. I went through a period in which the middle size was too small, but the largest was too loose. Something in the middle would have been perfect.
So, if you're expecting, I'd highly recommend that you head on over to It's You Babe to check out their great line of ergonomic products for pregnancy. You can also keep up with this terrific company via Twitter and Facebook. I'm looking forward to giving the Best Cradle for even more support a try these last few weeks to relieve my PSD. I don't know what I would do without my Prenatal Cradle this time around!
