pain in the legs normal?

I'm 37 weeks and for the last 2 days i have been having pain in my legs. Its like a sharp pain going down my legs. Has anyone ever had this? I can be sitting or walking and the pain will be so bad i have to stop walking. I walk my daughter to school in the mornings and the pain can be bad.

  • sounds like your uterus is pincing your Sciatic Nerve, there isnt really any thing you can do for it til after you deliver... sorry i'm dealing with that as well

  • Yep, like the other 2 posts said, your sciatic nerve is being pinched. It's very normal and your baby may move, giving you some relief or you may be in pain until after delivery.
