Hi girls. I'm just wondering if any one can shed some light on this problem or if anyone can help me prevent it. Basically from about 18 weeks pregnant I have been waking in the night with really achy legs. It's hard to explain but they feel really really heavy and just ache. They sometimes ache in the day too but it is mostly at night. Occasionally I wake in the night with cramping legs too but mostly it's just dull aching. I do have a job where I am on my feet all day and thought it was just because of this but I had all of last week off as holiday and this week they have been even worse. I am only 5ft 2 and my bump is quite big so maybe it's just the extra weight causing my legs to swell a little but I thought it was a bit early for this. Should I just put this down to a typical pregnancy symptom or should I get it checked out? I don't see anyone now until 28 weeks so thinking a doctors appointment may not be a bad thing. Also I have been suffering terrible heartburn the last couple of days which I know is normal and also severe neck ache which I'm not sure is pregnancy related but has anyone else had this type of aching in both legs at this stage?? Thanks girls and sorry for the long post.
