When im pregnant with my third child and first son! I only have 5 weeks left and well my legs are sore that at night I can not walk without pain, I cannot turn over in bed without it, I can not sit on the floor and get up without it, honesty I cant stand it any more, it puts me into tears, I have a 2yr old daughter who is at the very active stage and my 5 year old is fine and helps out when she feels like it lol, Ill taken the strongest pain killers that my doctor says it alright and wont hurt the baby, she recommend them and still nothing, heat packs and all that and just need to something to stop it, it inferred with my sleep and I take a hot shower before bed every night so I hop into bed, and now its only getting worst from bearable to now unbearable and alot more painful, it takes me 15 mins to get up during the night to go to the toilet because Im trying to get out of bed and find something to help me stand up then something else to help me take a few steps, is there anything i can do to make it bearable again, its taking over and I cant even clean my house without paying for it :-(

Is it cramps? I had MAJOR cramps with my son, and I was told to increase my calcium and potassium. I ate 2 bananas a day and used caltrate or something like that. Also drinking plenty of water is essential. The calcium that is in most pre natal vitamins is usually just not enough for a pregnant body. This really truly helped me. I still would get pain, but not like I was. I wish you the best of luck, and yeah I could not do normal activities either. I had to just sit, and that was even uncomfortable. I had a 3 year old son.
