Has anyone felt contractions in their legs before? Like the thigh area?

Yea, I always do during active labor. Never with BH. Hmmmm, are you in labor? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lurk.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lurk">:

I have had a couple days of cramps in my thighs. But I get that when it's AF time too.

Yes, OMG they are the worst, its the babys position. With my first is seriously felt like someone was stabbing my legs, I thought I was going to die.<br><br>
Not the best thing to say but as soon as he was delivered they stopped. Thank goodness!!

No not in labor but when I walk I get them and I have to stop. It hurts so bad. I think its the baby being so low but I'm not sure. Glad to know it's related, I thought my legs were giving out or something.

I have! I never did before this baby, but the other day when I was having some pretty regular BH contrax, they were starting at the top of my stomach, spreading down, down, down, and actually went into the tops of my legs. I thought I was nuts at first, but when I laid down on the bed to see what would happen, they were definitely down in my legs too. Obviously they stopped, but it was a pretty unpleasant sensation.

Oh god yes, I forgot until just now though. Funny how we just conveniently forget things like that...<br>
Going down on all 4's helped, so I assumed it was a position thing and moving helped turn her around. Easier said than done though, since I remember not being able to straighten out my leg. Good luck!

All three of my babies have been posterior/back labor. And the worst concentration of the contractions is always in my thighs. Makes me feel like my legs are just going to melt into a wobbly puddle.<br><br>
I don't feel BH in my back/buttock/thighs like I do "real" contractions, but a couple nights ago (and again tonight) I was feeling familiar twinges in my thighs. I think I've been overdoing it, and since I'm determined that this child MUST wait until December, and preferably until after the 9th, I think I'd better take it easy for a couple days.<br><br>
We'll see if that's possible though.....I have to go pick up a load of grain from the co-op on Friday, and I'm not sure there will be anyone there to help me load it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> And then we have our semi-annual church meeting (3 days of church) starting Friday, also. So it's going to be quite a weekend. And then Monday is going to be our first real opportunity to go food shopping to stock up for the month.<br><br>
I hope I survive! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:<br><br>
Maybe baby will decide to take it all out of my hands and come tonight. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> I know a year from now, I won't care, but tonight that just doesn't seem like a good idea at ALL!!! So chill a bit longer, baby! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I've wondered this myself, simply b/c my cramps during a period are felt much more heavily in my thighs than my stomach for some odd reason. They say the early/light contractions feel like period cramps - so I thought, "wonder if mine will be in my thighs." Hmmm. . .
