  • I did- with my son, I had labor in my legs. With my daughter, it was in my lower back and I think part of it is your pelvis opening to get ready to pass the baby on through. Get a heating pad or a tube sock and fill it with dried corn and microwave- put it under your back while you sleep. Try to wear good supportive shoes and stand using both feet (don't lean)

  • Sometimes pain comes early on b/c the joints are softening due to the hormones. Also, ligaments are stretching and even as early as the 1st trimester, your insides are getting some pressure.
