Week 32 of Pregnancy

JimmyLegs_Week32

Hey, how are your legs?

Restless leg syndrome is not dangerous or a sign that anything is wrong but it can be uncomfortable and disrupt your sleep, which is a royal pain in the ass.

No one really knows what causes the Jimmy legs, but it’s very common during pregnancy and it tends to happen at night affecting the lower legs between the knee and ankle, but it can also occur in your feet and arms.

Stretching, warms baths, acupuncture and massage seem to be the suggested remedies, but also mention it to your healthcare provider because they may want to check your iron levels to make sure you aren’t sporting a deficiency. I also received an email from a reader saying that 300 mg magnesium glycinate daily helped her – run it by your doctor to see if it would help.

Some women keep a food journal to see if something they eat (typically later in the day) is triggering the jumpy legs at night. It’s certainly worth a shot.

Oh, and if you’re trying to pass the time by watching movies, here’s a post to give you a heads up on movies that should be rated PT for Parental Trauma – Rated PT – Movies pregnant women and new parents should never watch.

As for the weeble, room in the womb is starting to get a bit tight. Your baby may be turned head down by this time. Not only is it pointing to the exit, but there’s also more room down there. Don’t worry too much if your baby hasn’t done the turn yet though. There’s still time to spin around even in the Manhattan apartment-like quarters he or she is living in.
