Some women can't escape leg cramps during pregnancy.These painful muscle contractions usually occur in the calf. If you find yourself in the middle of a leg cramp, try to ease the pain by resting your calf on a hot-water bottle or flexing your foot to stretch the calf.
When pain occurs along this nerve, the condition is known as sciatica.Many women experience sciatica during pregnancy because the enlarged uterus presses down on the sciatic nerve. This increased pressure causespain, tingling, or numbness in the lower back, buttocks, and thighs.
