We are due July 9 and today...well yesterday...was our "We only have 3 months!!" marker. This will be our third girl. My problem is that I am having HORRIBLE leg pains. They go from my butt to my calvs. If it is going to rain, the pain will be so bad that I cannot stand for long periods of time. I am also having alot of stomach pain. Not like contractions or like a hunger pain...but more of a sharp cramp. I told my doctor at our last visit and she advised me to drink more water. Well, today I drank an entire gallon of water, plus juice and milk. So I know that it isn't because I am dehydrated. I know that this is something that I should talk to my doc about, but I'm just wondering if anybody has experienced this?? Like I said this is our third and I've never had the problems that I have been having in this pregnancy.

I had really bad leg cramps when I was pregnant. I would wake up in the middle of the night in SO much pain. I talked to my DR about it and she said that it was because my daughter was pinching a nerve and it wouldn't go away until after I had her. It was horrible but I guess it was just another thing to deal with!

I got really bad leg cramp with both of mine always at night but if i drank a glass of milk before bed i didnt get it, the midwife said its the calcium that helps

Hi Danielle

Im due on the 7th of July with my first!

I woke up early morning 5 days ago now with the worst leg cramp, ive had it once before during my pregnancy but nothing compared to this time!

I have since been limping because my leg is so sore. I went to the docs and he said that if my leg swells up, then it might be a blood clot and to go to the hospital asap!

So just keep an eye out incase this happens to you!

Good luck =D
