I was getting up to pee early this morning and when I went to step down off of the bed and start walking to the bathroom, my left leg buckled and I fell. Thankfully I landed on all fours. My leg was completely asleep. I had to stay in the all four position until I got feeling back into my leg. I don't even know when it fell asleep during the night. I have been sleeping on my left side since it is more comfortable. But I am thinking that the womb was pushing on just the right areas sleeping in the position that I was in to the point where it was cutting off circulation to my leg. Still freaked me out.
Anyone else having arms or legs falling asleep?

Well, my right arm has been going to sleep since before the pregnancy, but it has gotten worse.

The other day I woke up and my hands were numb. They wouldn't go back to normal for a couple of hours. It was really crazy.
