Yup, I had my first one last night. I got one or two during my first pregnancy and remember all too well how miserable they are! I'm hoping I'll be limited to a small number this time around too.
I'm really just looking for people with whom I can commiserate. I take Magnesium and try to stay hydrated (I know what I should do to try and prevent them.) The hardest part for me is that I like to stretch when I wake up and that's often what seems to trigger them. I've been able to stop myself as I feel a cramp begin until now, but last night I must have straightened my leg too quickly while sleeping - not a fun way to wake up.
Like I said, looking more to vent than anything else. Though maybe for any first time moms who have yet to experience the joy of the leg cramp this could be a good spring board to discuss other things people have found that help :)
Thanks for letting me let go of some of my pain :)
