Pregnancy and Leg Cramps
At different times during your pregnancy, you might have sudden muscle spasms in your legs or feet. They usually occur at night. This is due to a change in the way your body processes calcium.
What Might Help
- Gently stretch muscles.
- Get mild exercise.
- For sudden cramps, flex your foot forward.
- Eat calcium-rich foods.
- Ask your doctor about calcium supplements.
