Advice on restless leg syndrome?

I am 17 weeks along with my second child. I have been having restless leg to the point where I’m tossing and turning at night more than I’m sleeping and it’s leaving me completely exhausted coming morning time. This happened with my first but not until I was about 30 ish weeks, so I didn’t have to deal with it as long. Any moms have any tips on what I can do to help my restless leg?

I never used to have any faith in essential oils really, and I still don’t, lol, but this stuff WORKS. I used it while pregnant, before pregnancy and I still use it. I love it!

I had it with my second daughter, eat bananas during the day, use pillows under your legs. I’m sorry but it can get better :heart:

Eat loads of bananas!

There’s this cream from 8 Sheep Organics and it works wonders for pregnancy discomforts like that. Restless leg, sciatic pain, muscle aches, trouble sleeping, you name it. The woman who owns the company hand makes every jar so since I’m sensitive to lavender and can’t have anything with it so she was nice and substituted chamomile essential oil for me. Highly recommend. It’s the only thing helping me sleep and I also rub it on my husband who has a severe shoulder injury.

Have your iron checked. If that is fine try adding B6 and magnesium.

My OB recommended drinking a Gatorade before bed and it worked for me!

I just read an article that your body absorbs water better when you are horizontal. They recommended drinking two glasses of water before laying down for bed. Also my 7 year old has restless leg syndrome. Her Dr said no milk after noon and only 2 glasses a day and no chocolate after noon either. Amazon also has leg sleeves to help with this, my SO has them.

Antihistamines like Benadryl can make it worse did for me anyway as well as Phenergan.

I know first hand celery juice helps…

Any kind of sleep medicine or benedryl will make it worse, I’m on baby number four and struggling early with it too. I had to stop using my sleep aid because it made my arms and legs restless too. Pillow between your knees at night helps, staying hydrated, don’t drink a lot of caffeine during the day as caffeine makes it worse, eat bananas, epsom salt baths in warm water help, and massage

Mine was an iron deficiency. Had to be tested through the primary doctor. They discovered I had periodic limb movement disorder after a sleep test I took at roughly 13 weeks pregnant. I have to take an iron supplement.

Potassium!!! Are you taking Benadryl or anything to help sleep???

They say drink water Durning the night

Heating blankets on my feet helped me. Also I ate a lot of bananas, but they didn’t seem to take it away. Warm soaks for my feet before bed and heating blankets were the only way I could get any sleep my last pregnancy
