Left leg numbness?

I am 17 weeks pregnant with number five and have never dealt with this before. My left leg is numb from about the middle of my left butt cheek down to my ankle. My foot is not numb though. No swelling or discoloration and its mostly along the shin bone.

Sounds like sciatic pressure.

I have the numb leg feeling in my left as well but it's not constant. I assume baby is pressing on some nerve, it goes away after several minutes. But if yours sticks around for awhile maybe go see a massage therapist?

My right one has been doing this my whole pregnancy (and only this -- my 4th pregnancy). I have had sciatic pain with all of them but this was new. I did see a chiro and it helped relieve it for awhile and then I had to go back and it helped again. I would suggest it if you can make it happen.
