How does the Belly Bandit Upsie Gel Pack Work?

The Belly Bandit Upsie Gel Pack is perfectly sized to fit neatly into the back pocket of your Upsie Belly Pregnancy Support Band so you can easily combine extra muscle support with soothing comfort. Simply freeze or heat your gel pack and insert it into your support band for targeted hot/cold therapy that can help alleviate lower back pain and relax tense or strained muscles.

Why do I need the Belly Bandit Upsie Gel Pack?

When it comes to lower-back pain in pregnancy, relief often feels just out of reach. With the combined power of the Belly Bandit Upsie Gel Pack and our Upsie Belly Pregnancy Support Band, you can get dual-action support to directly address the causes of lingering back pain. The Upsie Belly Pregnancy Support Band provides extra support by gently lifting your belly to give your back muscles a break while the Belly Bandit Upsie Gel Pack uses either heat or cold to help soothe muscles and encourage healing. If you’re experiencing any lower-back pain during your pregnancy, this dynamic duo is a must-have!

Why does my back hurt so much during pregnancy?

The main cause of back pain during pregnancy is a growing belly. Not only is there more weight for your body to support, but the size and position of your baby bump actually shifts your center of gravity. This means your back muscles are being pulled in new directions, plus they are supporting more weight than ever before. With so much to do, it’s no surprise that these muscles tire out, resulting in pain, stiffness and persistent aches.

How do I use the Upsie Gel Pack?

Simply freeze the gel pack for at least 30 minutes or heat it for 20-30 seconds in the microwave on high. Then slip the Upsie Gel Pack into the specially designed back pocket which will hold it perfectly in place against your lower back. You should wear the Upsie Gel Pack off and on for 15-minute intervals.

How can I relieve lower-back pain during pregnancy?

One of the best ways to find relief from lower-back pain during pregnancy is to use hot and cold packs like the Upsie Gel Pack to help reduce swelling and relax sore muscles. Gel packs are small enough to target specific areas and not raise or lower your core body temperature to levels that would be dangerous for your baby.

Does this gel pack provide pregnancy back pain relief?

Yes! In fact, that was the whole idea behind its design. While the Upsie Gel pack can be used to help alleviate pain in parts of your body, it’s perfectly sized to fit in the Upsie Belly Support Band pocket and cover the lower back muscles.

Is lower-back pain normal in early pregnancy?

Unfortunately, yes. While lower-back pain is most common and most intense towards the end of pregnancy, it’s not uncommon to experience back pain during the first trimester as a result of changing hormones and increased stress.

How can I sleep with lower back pain while pregnant?

The best way to sleep while pregnant is on your side so you don’t restrict blood flow. This position can be really good for your lower back, too. Putting a pillow between your knees will help level your hips and straighten your spine into a more natural position.

Other tips for back pain relief during pregnancy

Using hot and cold packs and wearing a pregnancy support band are both great ways to help provide back pain relief during pregnancy. Other options to help with pregnancy back pain relief include:

 

  • Practicing good posture
  • Receiving massages to help loosen tight muscles
  • Stretching regularly
  • Acupuncture
  • If necessary, medication prescribed by your doctor
