38 wks, what is this pain in my leg?

Not sure if I'm worrying about nothing! Woke up yesterday with pain in my upper left leg, it's a weird pain and i can't work out whether it's at the front of my leg or the back if that makes sense... it's like a nerve pain. I've woken up with it again this morning but don't think it's any better or worse. It goes away when I move around but if I sit down for a while it's there when I get up.

It isn't really bothering me so not sure whether to ignore it or whether I should call mw in case of DVT etc. Anyone else experienced this in late pregnancy??

Is it right at the top near the groin? I kept getting what felt like a trapped nerve at the front right at the top of my leg near the groin in the last few weeks and I think she was pressing on a nerve as it went completely after she was born

However if you are worried about DVT contact your midwife.

Did you sleep funny? It s possible your pelvis is loose so you might have wobbled it a little,
Maybe a chat with a Physio / osteo might see you right (they may or may not be happy to so work on you at this stage of pregnancy so worth talking to them first )

Is your leg swollen at all? I would also recommend to contact your MW, to rule out a DVT - they can be easy to miss.
