I have been awakened in the middle of the night with these awful, paralyzing calf cramps. I seem to remember they are not an uncommon pregnancy symptom and I can help them by taking something. Was it magnesium? Thanks!
eat bananas... also my grandmother keeps a bar of soap in her bed under the sheets to rub her legs against when they are cramping. I suffered more from foot cramps. I keep a can of soda in the fridge and when a cramp comes on DH dashes down and grabs it. I roll my foot back and forth. Works every time.
