Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

This is called Restless Leg Syndrome. It is very common during pregnancy. I went to my dr with this problem when I was about 6 months in, and they prescribed me a low dose of muscle relaxers. They help tremendously.
Also, if your laying on your back when it happens, Your not supposed to sleep on your back or lay on it really..
I did this in my third trimester.  My doctor said that it is common.  My son was extremely low and he was pushing on my nerves.  It was only my right leg.  Massaging my leg helped. 
You caould also be pinching a nerve or something like that. I would call the dr and let them know what is going on. They are the ones who can tell you for sure what it is. Good luck! :)
