Omg it's so late and I am sick to death of having hot feet and restless legs and not being able to sleep! Anyone else suffering with this? I'm 39+2 and I can no longer continue. I'm at the point where I am crying on the couch because I'm so uncomfortable. I've tried wet socks, cold dunks in the bath, even standing outside on the cold path. sadsad

Same here. My feet are on fire!!!! Of course the previous 3 nights they have been so cold I have almost vomited 😐

I'm glad I'm not the only one, but what I wouldn't give to have cold feet again! I used to always have freezing feet no matter what! I miss them! Lol

Have you tried Paracetamol? A friend suggested it to me and it worked quite well. She suggested them and journalists before bed, but if you are still awake go for it now.
I hate restless legs, you have my sympathy.

Predictive text has been drinking. She suggested it an hour before bed. Lord only knows where the journalist came from.

Try putting one of those wheat heat packs in the fridge or freezer and putting it on your feet at bed time. I feel your pain though, it's awful. Lost found of how many times I've kicked dh!

Restless legs are driving me insane!!
I'm 31+1 and have been getting them nearly every night the past few weeks and also had them at the beginning.

misscherryviolet I really feel your pain, it's a horrible feeling when you just want to get to sleep. I asked my midwife the other day and she suggested a hot bath before bed and eating iron rich foods.

Sardi I have just had a hot bath so I'm gonna go to bed now and try it. I hope it works because I've a pregnancy pinup shoot tomorrow and I need some rest! I'll let you know if it works ! Fingers crossed you also manage to get some relief too smile
