I am 38 +3 weeks.. when i lift my left leg it sends a shooting pain like a contraction into my lower abdomen...
I can lift my right leg just fine...what could this be?? Should i be concerned?

I had it too, it's pelvic pain and my doctor said it was a normal pregnancy pain :)

Maybe sciatica? Call your dr just in case. Good luck.
