What symptoms can you expect in your 38th week of pregnancy?
You may find that you have restless leg syndrome during pregnancy. This is an overwhelming urge to move your legs because of a crawling or tingling sensation inside your foot, calf, or upper leg. You may also feel cramping, burning or pain in these areas. The pain can be worse overnight and in the evenings.
Stretching and rubbing your legs will help to relieve the pain. You may need to take an iron supplement, as some experts believe that a pregnancy induced iron deficiency can aggravate restless leg syndrome. This condition isn't serious so don't worry.
