Hi thanks for your question.
In third trimester,near the term,when baby descends dawn,pressure and pain in lower part of abdomen is usually felt.Little numbness in feet suggests probably,you have pressure on your intervertebral disc.I would suggest you consult your gynaecologist,who may be able to examine and may provide appropriate treatment.
Hope this answers your question
