I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this. Ever since I got pregnant, my joints have been going nuts with creaking and cracking. I've never had this problem before and it's driving me nuts. I've been taking my calcium and doing my exercising, but nothing seems to stop it.

yeah it' a side effect of the hormone relaxin and oxytocin in your body. it helps in many ways. but the side effect is that falling apart feeling lol. take it easy, and rest often! make sure you are eating (not supplements) lots of calcium, EFAs and greens. it may not make it all better but it will prevent you from becoming depleted.
