There could be a few reasons for this.... Weight gain Nerves and muscles becoming more compressed as the baby grows Lack of exercise or overexertion Dehydration Althought it's probably something simple and nothing to fret over, you could make an appointment with your doctor, or call your doctor's office and speak to a nurse. They can better help you than I (= Best of luck!
