There are many things that bug me while pregnant.....constant back pain, not being able to get comfy, heartburn all the time .....and my list goes on and on. However the thing I hate most is RLS!!!! I am so tired of not being able to sleep that I think I may go insane! I don't even just get the creepy crawly feeling in just my legs I get it all over my body within minutes of laying down to go to sleep. I went to bed at midnight and here it is nearly 2 am and here I am shaking my legs like a mad woman instead of sleeping *sigh*  Is a little sleep really to much to ask for?!

RLS sucks really bad! I get it too but for me it goes away when I go to bed so I'm really lucky there. It is such an uncomfortable feeling. I cannot even begin to imagine trying to sleep with it. I hope you can find some relief soon!

I'm another lucky one who gets RLS when I need to go to bed.  It goes away once I'm in bed.

I am so sorry. I feel your pain. I too suffered from RLS when laying down. My 8th month of second pregnancy, all I could do was cry day or night. It was really bad, I finally took ambien. Not the best thing to do, but doc said I was making myself sick with no sleep. Hope you find a way to rest. I also used a tenz (sp) unit. On a low setting. Little electric shocks that help muscles relax. Chiropractor ordered it for me.

What does RLS stand for ? :) what I would like to know : is what can be eaten to regain strength during confinement. Does any1 have any bright ideas ? Anything herbal , natural to help heal .. Or comfort food ?
