my legs hurt when I sleep!

I'm not sure how far along I am yet, I'm in my first trimester for sure though. Recently, when I sleep, I wake up with my legs feeling like they're asleep.. not necessarily the pins and needles feeling but that dead weight kind of thing... It kind of hurts. Any advice? Is this even normal?

  • That didnt happen to me till my 3rd trimester but what i did was switch to my left side and DH would massage my legs for me. It is pretty common later in pregnancy.

  • o0o it is normal to have leg cramps while sleeping mine get so bad I have to get out of bed and walk around to get it to go away I have been brought to tears over mine and I am in my second trimester but It did it with my first baby and now with the second get used to it because it doesn't go away thing that helps though is if you eat a bannana one before you go to bed and see if it helps sometimes that works
