I'm 16 weeks pregnant and I started having numbness in my left thigh.

Does anyone else have this? Do I need to call my doctor. First pregnancy.

  • I would call your doc but it could be that your uterus is pinching a nerve on that side somewhere.

  • Sound like sciatica. Let your doc know at the next appointment. He may suggest lower back massage, chiropractic work, stretching, etc.
