  • I would also call your doctor and ask them what it could be.

  • pillow between your knees, and I believe its your left side you should sleep on, it relieves pressure on the nerves that run down your right side and will relieve pins and needles and high blood pressure.

  • I had pinched nerves in my lower back with my 2nd child. Try some gentle pregnancy yoga, after checking w/ your OBGYN of course.
