Leg cramp during bowel movement and passing gas...?

Im 36 weeks pregnant and about a week ago Ive had this weird pain/cramp feeling that starts at my hip/lower back all the way to the bottom of my calf and when I have a bowel movement or pass gas it turns into a charlie horse (cramp) and is very uncomfortable. Also, my bowel movements have become very irregular. This didnt happen w my last pregnancy so Im kinda confused...is this normal? Has it ever happened to anyone else?

  • are you drinking enough water and getting enough potassium? be sure to drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day, and eat a banana or kiwi (more potassium than banana and more vitamin C than orange juice) every day.
