I never had this with my first pregnancy, but in the last 2 months, I've started having a feeling of numbness and tingling in my left groin area. It's to the point that when I have an episode, I have to stop and wait for the feeling to subside before I can continue walking.

I keep thinking it must be baby laying or pinching a nerve, but it's the weirdest feeling ever.

I've never heard of it, but have you been to a chirorpactor? I swear my chirorpactor has done wonders for me this pregnancy. I have gone to her every month without fail.

Yeah, I've been seeing my chiro regularly and I explained it to her too. Oh well, hopefully not much longer now

Well, it's probably just the baby in an inconvenient spot - sorry. Yes, it won't be long now! I'm actually starting to get a little freaked out about that part! You'd think I'd be used to that since I'm on #4! Oh well!

Sounds like a pinched nerve to me too... Sorry I'm not more help. Does Tylenol help at all? Tylenol is the answer to everything for me these days.
Hang in there! The light you see at the end of the tunnel is NOT an oncoming train! LOL!

Sounds like the baby putting pressure on a nerve. All of my babies have done that . . . this one seems to be particularly talented at finding my nerve . . . and it actually shoots pain into my groin. Very unpleasant, but it's based on baby's movement, not mine, so it doesn't seem like much I can do about it. Other than give birth.

Hang in there!

Yep, I have that too. Mine's not so much a numbness or tingling, but more of a sharp pain that makes me have to stop walking, and bend over. Maybe it's just one more thing to make us walk funny, because we already don't have enough. LOL

during my pregnancy with Abigail, the last 2 months, I had numbness and tingling along my right arm right to my fingertips. My midwives referred me to a physical therapist who discovered the cause of the numbness was a nerve pinched by tense muscles in my back (right rhomboid muscle). So, I was given massage and electroshock therapy... electrodes are placed on tense muscle, shocks make muscle tighten repeatedly til muscle is exhausted and relaxes. It actually worked. It really loosened me up and the numbness went away.
I sometimes get the numbness in a leg, but it never lasted long.
I've noticed just yesterday that I've been getting stiff in the same spot (upper right back, near shoulderblade) and this time I've only got 3 weeks to go, so at least it won't bug me for two months!

Oh, wow! I've been having this pain, too, and never experienced it with my other two. I'm sorry you're having it, but thanks for posting the question. Now I know what it is!!!
