Good morning all..i also shared here earlier that due to short cervical length dr. said last week that the delivery can happen before time also...from last 4-5 days i am having very very very very bad lower back ache that goes into legs through thighs..the pain is that much in the night that i can't even sleep properly & feel cranky...in my last visit i told my dctr but she gave me tablet for leg cramps & nothing for back & said dnt use hot water bag..i want to know is this normal??...is it sign of labour?..Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M

i am 33 weeks pregnant

Backache and pain in the legs is normal in the pregnancy. That's not the sign of labour. Get maalish done for the relief.

it is common in third trimester to have backpain and pain in thighs and legs... you can opt for pain relieving sprays or gel or ointment too.. and it is a sign of labour or not can be well explained by your doctor.. so discuss with her again..

hey. correct your posture, when u walk sit or sleep. speak to ur doc if there's no relief

i spoke to her but she is not paying much attention to back pain..i am having back pain throughout my pregnancy but this is something different thats y i m worried...& what is the harm in using hot water bag?

don't stand for a long tym...m also having pain in my legs and hips...but when I lie down wid elevate my legs for some tym I get a grt relief ...u can also try..always lie down wid elevate ur legs...use pillows between ur legs nd under ur legs while sleeping it will help u😄

Neha Singla jb straight let k legs k niche pillow lgati hu tu or pain hota h back me or jyada der straight let b ni paati..left ya right me let k legs elevate krti hu to b uncomfortable lgta h

I know aap straight nhi let sakte...m bhi nhi let paati hu bahut problm hoti h...but I elevate my legs on stool or anything with lie down straight for 10-15 mints...then I change my position left or right nd keep 2 pillows under my legs...but continuously straight letna possible nhi h..or letna bhi nhi chahie pregnancy me straight..

sometimes when I get untolerable pain in my legs or hips ...I use any pain relief gel..u can also try..u'll feel better...gel like volini or any other u have
