  • i would call my doctor - could be just normal pains but could be signs of blood clot etc. def get to a phone and talk to a nurse at least...

  • Indeed i am agreeing with Vak*

    It could be a nerve too,
    but still there are RISKS for blood clots in the legs at a certian point in pregnancy~

  • I would definitely call your on-call nurse, I'm currently 27 weeks and I've had the sharp, knife-stabbing-like pains in my stomach, but not down my legs. I immediately called the doctor and was told that the stabbing pains were from stretching body parts (oooh great!) but I'm sure at 9 months, you've done all the stretching you need. Call your nurse.
