  • Sounds like you're overdoing it. Stay off your feet, stay hydrated and look into a maternity massage.

  • Unfortunately lower back pain and leg pain is very common at this stage of pregnancy.
    You're posture is changing as you're growing and causes you to slump more and increase the pain in the legs for overcompensating your posture.
    The best thing you can do is start an exercise regiment or walk. Don't cross your legs while sitting and remind yourself to stand up straight as well as sit up straight.
    If this doesn't help, it may be the baby putting pressure on your sciatic nerve. Something to discuss with your Dr at your next appointment.

  • Drink plenty of water and see a chiropractor.
