Sometimes pregnant women experience lower back pain, which spread around the thigh down to the knee or even ankle. These symptoms are the result of the pressure of growing uterus on the sciatic nerve, located next to it, in the pelvic cavity. At 28th week of pregnancy women often experience the numbness and creeping sensation of the hands. The reason for such violations can be accumulation of fluid in the body, squeezing the swollen tissues of sensitive nerve endings. Along with this, an expectant mother may experience cramping limbs, caused by lack of calcium in the body.
By this time, a pregnant woman can gain 5-9 kg of weight, and although she feels a bit awkward, she is still quite active both at work and in preparing things for the baby.
