  • I know that I got leg cramps in all of my pregnancies, due to low potasium, but not bulging knots. And the pain didn't last all day. I would def give my obgyn a call, this doesn't sound normal. Remember it doesn't hurt to call & ask a question, better safe than sorry!! Good Luck!

  • Its just severe pain everywhere in my legs!the knots dont hurt any worse than the rest of my legs!i asked my mom to take a look and she told me she didnt know what to say about them cause itd been a while since she was preg and didnt remember if she had it.My gma told me to try extra vitamins but i cant even take my reg. prenatal vitamins,i have to take flinstones cause all the prenatal vitamins they gave me made me really sick!the nurse at my ob wouldnt let me speak to the doc she told me if i was worried about it to go to the er!

  • I got that pain during and after my pregnancy, and now that my son is 3, i still suffer with that pain in my legs its called restless leg syndrome, if you're lucky it'll go away but if not, you'll have it forever, sadly theres no cure for it yet, just pills that control the pain, but since i cant swallow pills i just deal with the pain myself. being awake till late at night just makes my pain worse, and also i have to jog on my treadmil to ease the pain. it can also mean that your blood doesnt circulate right, and you can also get blood clots like that. So just try exercising atleast 3 times a week and stretch, stretching calms the pain too. now if that doesnt help and you have the extra money go ahead and tell your dr. about it.

  • I also had pain in both my legs during pregnancy! Try the medical stockings! They really do work and the socks did relieve much of the pain. You can find them in any store i.e. walgreens, rite-aid, cvs etc. Good luck and HTH!
    But do mention the pain your experiencing at your next obgyn appt.
