Get checked: Get checked. It is common to have leg cramps and back pain both during and after pregnancy and/or c-section. But when it persists after two weeks though it may reflect simple contractions from breast feeding, or diminished potassium or magnesium, it also can reflect an infection, blood clot, mass or other concern that can usually easily be ruled out by a quick doctor's visit.
