Discomfort during pregnancy

I am pregnant and I have the sensation of having heavy or tired legs. Is this normal? What can I do?

During pregnancy, a sensation of heaviness in the legs is very common: more than one in three women suffer from this.This phenomenon is particularly frequent towards the pregnancy and during very hot weather. It is caused by the slowing of the blood circulation and increased blood pressure in the veins of the legs. To relieve this problem we advise you to massage your legs with Mustela Maternité Light Legs Gel: you will immediately regain a sensation of freshness and an immediate relaxing effect thanks to the unique combination of Avocado Peptides and menthol extract.
