In brief: Cause not known
According to one study restless leg syndrome is seen in about 16% of pregnant women.
It runs in families and if you already have it the chances of it getting worse are high during pregnancy.

In brief: Several reasons
Your hormones are different.
Also for some women the added weight puts pressure on the back, etc making it hard to find a comfortable sleeping position.
