I hate having leg cramps in the middle of the night, especially during the third trimester of the my pregnancy. I used to get leg cramps every night for about two weeks during the second trimester. What I usually did when I got a leg cramp was jump right out of bed, walked back and forth for a few seconds and the cramp would go away. I could do this when my belly was smaller but now, I can no longer do this due to my enormous belly. I didn’t know the cause of it so I just ate more greens to get more magnesium and stretched my calf every night and eventually the cramps went away.
But now it’s back!
