Anyone else getting sore, crampy, sometimes numb legs at night?
This just started for me around 22 weeks. I find it's worse in the morning - I usually end up waking up early because my legs are bugging me so much! As soon as I get up and move around they feel better.
Usually whatever leg I'm sleeping on (since I sleep on my side most times) will hurt the most, but sometimes the other one hurts too. Even just getting up to pee in the night sometimes relieves it a bit...
Seems like a circulation problem maybe? Is this common?
Yup - restless leg syndrome ... I have it and its horrible last night it literally kept me awake all night I think I got around three hours sleep and feel useless today which isnt very good when I have a nearly two year old to run around after.
I had that problem with my first and ate a banana everyday and it went away. I hate bananas but the potassium or something in them cured it so it was totally worth it. If you don't mind bananas it's worth a try .
