Im 35 weeks pregnant with my second child. For the past week or so i have been getting achy legs at night. At first it would wake me up once or twice but i could sleep through it but now im awake every half hour to an hour through the night with dreadful hip pains (almost like cramp) and a heavy aching in my legs. Its impossible to sleep. The only thing i find to help is to get up and walk around downstairs for a while however i am now exhausted. I have tried using pillows of various designs (which worked really well with my first pregnancy) but i find they make me more uncomfortable. My legs have also started aching all through the day now as well when walking around or stood up.
Does anyone have any other suggestions i could try? Apart from a pregnancy bump i'm not overweight at all. I dont want to take paracetamol because, although safe, i would be popping it all day and all night!
