I have been having HORRIBLE leg pains. The pain is in the back of my legs and goes from my butt down to my calfs. The pain is so bad sometimes that I can hardly stand. I actually had to make the cup cakes for my daughter's birthday party sitting in a chair. When I take a shower the backs of my legs will look like they are bruised. I have tried drinking more water, juice and milk...one can only drink so much in a day. I have cut soda out of my diet completly! I don't think that it would be my potassium because I am always eating mashed potatos and bananas. I have even been eating atleast 2 servings of Cocoa Wheats a day. My doctor told me that this can be common in pregnancy and to drink more water...if I drink any more I will drown! Ontop of that I have been having stomach pains. Not contraction, not hunger and certainly not dehydration. It is on my left side for the most part, but ever so often it will shift to the right. It is very crampy and sharp. It is becoming more and more uncomfortable with time. Laying down doesn't help either. We are due in just 3 months and I would really hate for something to be wrong. Again I have talked to the doc. and she said that everything looked ok. So, I'm just wondering if anybody has had similar symptoms???
