Restless legs during pregnancy?!

I am almost 17 weeks and at night my legs go crazy! I get this intense feeling like I HAVE to move them! I can't stand it!

Anyone else dealing with this?

What can I do to help it?

  • I had that with my last pregnancy and nothing helped. Hopefully yours doesn't stick around after the pregnancy like mine did.

  • Supplement w/magnesium if it's OK w/your doctor. Works great on RLS.

  • Oh Lord! I had that with my last two pregnancies. It is the worst. I had it in my arms as well, especially at night. I couldn't sleep because I felt like I had to keep moving. I don't know how to get it to stop. I would have my DH rub them when I was really struggling and I'd eventually just fall asleep. Good Luck! I know it's so awful!
