Restless legs driving me mad

I'm 25 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and recently my restless legs are driving me crazy at night. I'm still taking my antenatal vitamins and trying to eat a banana most days but the last few nights have been ridiculous. I don't remember being like this with my son but then I'm exhausted now as trying to work from home and look after a 5 year old with SEN is not easy! Any advice before I chop my legs off tonight?!

I struggle with this every few years on and off and when it randomly hits me I lie awake all night having to stretch my legs and body, bloody horrible!

I can recommend trying the following, it does help..

- cold or hot bath before bed
- ice packs under legs at night to distract you and help symptoms
- stretch as much as you can before bed
- have your partner or someone give you a firm massage on your legs before bed

Good luck 😥
