Numbness in my legs. Please advise
I'm 7 months pregnant, it's my second child, I had the same sensation with my first pregnancy and would like to know if it is normal and how can I get rid of it as it keeps me up all night and makes sleeping a very tricky thing. When my body is relaxed, i get a type of pins and needles, almost numb sensation in both my legs that is driving me crazy!!!! What is it and how do I get rid of it. Please help.

It may be that the baby is pressing on a nerve. Physio might help.
