Weakness in my legs

Hi I am 30 weeks pregnant with  my first baby. For the past month or so I have been feeling weakness in both of my legs, and my balance is not so great anymore. These symptoms came on suddenly one day, so I don't think it's from gradual weight gain. I am wondering if I can have a compressed motor nerve in my spine. Has anyone else experienced weakness in their legs?  I heard from a friend about a pregnant woman who actually became paralyzed and unable to walk which lasted for 1 month after giving birth. My OB has not heard of anyone else with my symptoms.
