Having exhaustion, hand/leg cramps and hip pain is fairly normal, but if they are as extreme or as sudden of an onset as you say it’s always better to ask your OB. They may be a sign of a medical condition or at the very least your OB can probably recommend treatments/changes to your routine that may help relieve your discomfort.

navywifenmoore:  I think it’s always good to go in and get a doctor’s opinion.

With that said, I think it’s normal to get tired at that point in pregnancy. I remember that was right around when I began to feel more fatigued, moving around was harder, and i just felt like my body was resting up for those last weeks of pregnancy and for labor and delivery.

I think depending on where your baby is positioned maybe the cramping could be nerve related. It also could be that you need to drink more water.

I would at least call your OB.

Cramps, hip and pelvic pain, and exhaustion are all normal on their own.  I used to wake up at 4 or 5am with horrible hip pain.  I mean, if it’s so extreme that it’s preventing you from normal activities during the day, I would ask your OB.  You probably go in every couple weeks, so I would just ask at your next appointment.

It’s normal…when the baby is this big it can press on your nerves, causing numbness, and extreme hip and pelvic pain are normal (Unfortunately!). So don’t worry–but do mention it to your OB for peace of mind, and also in case she can recommend anything to help. Hang in there.
