  • It will hurt at first, but then feel better, have dh or somebody massage them. It is most likely a build up of lactic acid. I get that a lot and it is painful. Congrats and good luck!

  • MIne do too :(
    Try keeping your feet propped up,massaging,alternating between cold packs and hot packs.
    If it were just one leg..I would say get it checked for possible blood clot..but its both so that unlikely...but not unheard I would give the doc a call and see what he/she reccomends.
    Hope it feels better soon!

  • Is it like charlie horses? If it is, take magnesium supplements! My midwife told me to when I was having that problem and by the 2nd day of taking them it was 100% better!!
