Did your legs hurt when you were pregnant?

Every morning when I wake up, my legs hurt as if I just ran a marathon. I didn`t have this in my first pregnancy.

  • Yes. I also had the whole restless legs thing. I've since heard the achey restless legs can be indicative of an iron deficiency...but it wasn't so in my case. Just another beautiful symptom of my pregnancy. :)

  • Yes, my legs hurt a lot, especially my inner thighs in the last couple of months would be very sore when I woke up in the morning.

  • Mine hurt as well. I just tried to keep them elevated whenever I sat down and also tried to get plenty of rest.
