I don't know how to describe it well. It isn't an ache, and it's not always painful...and when it is painful it only lasts a split second. The sensation happens at the center inside upper thigh. No back pain or anything associated with it. Just a spot of sensation. It's happened every pg and I've never had any luck figuring out exactly what it is, other than just assuming a nerve being messed with by the weight of the baby. It doesn't happen until the 3rd tri either. Usually what happens is I go to take a step and I have to stop because of the intense momentary sensation-it just stops me in my tracks for a second, and then I can keep going. Sometimes I have to move my leg in the opposite direction to kind of unstick it. It usually happens every few minutes while I'm up moving around, but today it's happening while standing too. Anyone?

Are you sure its your leg/thigh and not your groin? I say that because I have pulled my groin muscle playing sports in the past and after the initial "oh ****" it gets to be that dull ache. Not saying you pulled it, just thinking maybe because you're in your third tri and your hips are spreading for birth it might be straining that muscle just a bit.

Have you tried making sure you stretch? I know.. easier said than done while pregnant. lol

I actually do stretch as often as I remember to. Dh lifts weights a few times a week after the kids are in bed and I do a little and then stretch. I don't think it's a pulled muscle, there wasn't even a really painful moment. I remember when my little brother pulled his groin when we were teenagers and how whiny he was. It's definitely in my thigh, just barely though, right at the top.
