Ack shooting leg pains!!!

Has anyone else had these? I'm having intense but manageable contractions right now, but in my left groin/upper leg I am having unbelievable shooting/stabbing pains with the contractions! They double me over!! Has anyone else had these? I feel like a vein is going to burst or something.

I had the same thing with Malachi. Sorry you're having to go thru it. The good thing is when I was in active labor I no longer had them in my legs.

sounds like maybe a nerve is being pinched or compressed, or something? i haven't felt anything like that, but mine have been carrying over into my lower back lately...ouch!

It def sounds like a nerve is being pinched. Maybe you could try and move the baby?

If it's a nerve thing, you could try some pelvic rocks or walking to move the baby a bit.
