Hi all, I am almost reaching the 9th week of my pregnancy. I experience alot of pain in both my legs and now since a day or two even my feet are aching. There is also a mild pain in my back sometimes. I travel to work and also feel really exhausted by the end of the day.What should I do, to reduce all this? Thanks

Tiredness in the first trimester is fairly normal. Your body needs additional rest as it is making a baby. Take a long weekend off to rest it out and you could consider some leg and foot massages to relieve the aches and pains. Ensure that the therapist is certified for Pregnancy. Lower back pain may be posture related.
