Pain in pregnancy

Hi I am 26 weeks pregnant and starting to struggle with pain in my feet and legs, how do other people manage it? I'm a nurse and have already reduced my hours to 6hr shifts and no nights but so tired! I'm not sure what to do? Can I claim any benefits if had to reduced my working hours or if I have to finished work?

well i had extreme leg pain with my children i use to have to elevate my legs and either press up against the wall with my heel or toe hurt like heck in the beginning but relieved the pain also eat bananas it does help. dont know about the work thing as everywhere will be different. I feel everyone gets extremely tired when pregnant CMT or not. You will manage maybe put some absorbine junior or heat rub on your legs might help as well Congratulations on your baby.


Thank you x
