I was looking for advice on proven remedies that worked for you for restless leg and body aches during the second semester of pregnancy.
My doctor told me to stretch before bed. It worked in my case!
Heating pad, warm foot soak or bath before bed and elevation. Only things that helped in my last pregnancy, good luck!
Magnesium, heating pad, massage before bed and leg wedge pillow.
Magnesium supplements and epsom salt baths before bed.
Put a couple pillows under your feet to elevate your legs and take a warm bath before bed.
Weighted blanket. Just not in stomach
Restless has a lot to do with being low on iron & magnesium. Ive had it over 27 years
Sometimes it’s low iron. I stocked up on that and potassium. If it’s bad enough I would stretch or just walk around the house for a bit. It’s awful and I’m so glad I’ve only had it during pregnancy
Aveeno stress relief lotion before bed!!!
I found this cream that works wonders: 8 Sheep Organics
I’ve heard that Dr. Teals melatonin bath soaks help for people with restless legs syndrome. Might be worth a shot, I read a lot of reviews saying it helped a lot of people with the same issue. They sell the bath soak and bubble bath for 4-5 bucks each depending where you get it.
Potassium and magnesium supplements is what my doctor had me take while I was pregnant. I’ve always had RLS and mixing those two actually helped and I’m still taking them now.
I had it really bad with my last one. I would sit on the end of the bed and swing my legs back and forth to “tire” them out. I did find an over the counter med for it and it worked great. Found it at Walgreens and it was called Restless legs
Ugh. I have awful restless legs currently in 3rd trimester. Rolling my legs every night with one of those muscle roller things and then afterwards applying 8 Sheep Organics lotion seems to be helping.
I have had rls. I read somewere that two sips of sweet pickle juice worked. I tryed it and it worked. Hope it helps.
Acquired RLS with 2nd pregnancy have had it now for 22yrs!!! Hot showers and/or baths sometimes I would 2-3 times a night. I had no remedies or suggestions then. Now (22yrs later) I am medicated for severe RLS. I hope you find something that helps
Bar of soap under the sheet, worked for me. Good luck
Nothing I spent 30 weeks, sitting on the edge of my bed rocking back and forth for hours until I was so exhausted; I’d fall asleep
My doctor suggested benadryl for me . It worked great !
