    I have found the last few weeks that when I try to go to bed at night my feet are really fidgity to the point where if I dont keep moving them around they actually seem to spasm and move themselves. when OH gave me a foot massage the other night my foot kept twitching too.
    I saw my sister in law recently who told me this was common during pregnancy, but I have never seen anything written about it.

    Has anyone else suffered this, or am I just weird, plus has anyone found a way to relieve it?

    The lady at my ante-natal class gave a tip for this.

    After the Oh gives it a little massage get him to push your foot upwards and stretch it gently as far as it will comfortably go and hold it for a bit.

    Have I explained this right? He needs to stretch your foot in the direction so that he were trying to touch your knees with your toes not backwards.

    Let us know if this works.
