i wake up in the night and lower legs and feet are so sore, feel really heavy and achy? is this a normal part of pregnancy at this stage? they dont normally hurt during the day. thanks

Are they swollen? My feet/ankles/legs get quite swollen when I'm pregnant. Am 40+3 now, and can't see my ankle bones :-( Could be poor circulation. Is your blood pressure normal? The only way I've found to keep my feet/legs even vaguely bearable at night is to raise the foot of the bed to help fluid drainage as I think baby is squashing some vital part of the lymphatic system or something. Not great for the heartburn, but at least I can take Peptac for that.
