Please do hot and cold compresses alternately if this relieves you. Do walking instead for some time in morning Take Mag phos 6x - twice daily for few days 4 tabs each time
Hi. your pain is because of gravide uterus pressure. It will never affect your baby. If severity more n affecting your daily work ,have walk on plan ground, milk, and yoga (but under expertise guidance), local application of painkiller like spray or gel. But avoid painkiller.

Apply pind oil.
Back and leg pain are common during pregnacy. It is because of the increasing baby weight and shifting of the line of gravity anteriorly. Avoid sitting for long time, walk around, do ankle pumps, maintain good postures, bend at knees while lifting, sleep in side lying with pillows under your knees, if you have no complication during your pregnancy then you can also do some back exs under the guidance of your doctor
