    For 3 days now ive noticed the bones in my legs feel bruised, and my ankles...i usually get my OH to give my legs and feet a rub and i noticed they hurt...is it the extra weight im carrying u think? they eint swollen, maybe on the outside of my ankle looks slightly puffy but nothing major.
    Anyone else got this or is it just me?

    Hiya hun, poor you! thats sounds pretty horrible. I'm sure it is nothing to worry about but I would put a call in to the MW and ask their opinion. You have so much worry going on as it is that if there is the slightest thing bothering you then you should be able to ask their advise and get your mind put at rest.

    I hope you get a positive answer soon :hugs:

    I had a thing called Erythema Nodosum on one of my shins. Not sure if it's the same as what you're experiencing but it felt like deep bruises (like on my bones) and lasted for ages (a few months). I'm not sure if a midwife would have recognised it but I saw a GP who specialises in dermatology and he knew what it was straight away. The bad news is that you can't take the treatment for it while pregnant (strong anti-inflammatories) but the good news is that it goes away on its own eventually and doesn't cause any problems other than being sore. I'd ask your midwife just to be sure it's nothing pregnancy-related and if it lasts more than a few weeks, maybe see a GP.
