Common Questions and Answers about Foot cramps pregnancy

Foot cream rubbed on the back of my calves helped. So did soaks in hot water and showers. Get hubby to give you a leg rub. Heating pad on the legs where it hurts or a warm water bottle. Exercise helps to keep the blood flowing. Wooden massage tool. Hop something helps soon! I feel your pain! I'm going through the exact same thing right now!!
Anyone have foot cramps in early pregnancy? I've had a bunch of them the last 3 days and I never get foot cramps. There is a first time for everything, I guess...
My first question is about foot cramps. I have read a little about pregnant women getting cramps in their legs, and I had one last week. But I have been struggling w/ really BAD foot cramps..I woke up the other night and I was almost in tears because I could not get the cramp out...Is foot cramping common as well? I think I read leg cramps could come from a lack of calcium, could that be the case w/ foot cramps as well? I am taking a horse of a prenatal vitamin, lol!

Go to CVS or a health food store, the is a product by Hylands called leg cramps. Its homeopathic and safe during pregnancy. I highly recommend it! Works for back cramps too. Also you can take a magnesium supplement that does wonders as well. I take both. Good luck.
is it normal to get charlie horses so much at the end of pregnancy. I swear i have one-three a night now for that last couple weeks, and now my lower leg in the back hurts really bad, like out of the blue. I just took a warm bath, and now i have slight cramping.
Does anyone else have calf cramps at night that leave a sore spot on your calf muscle the next day?
It happens at night for me and I have to get out of bed and like jump around for it to stop. It hurts so so bad in my calves. I know its common during pregnancy but geez it hurts so bad.

what can I do about my legs cramping up. I know it comes with pregnancy but last night it was so bad I woke up 5 dif times with cramps in one or the other leg and once it was my calf and my whole foot and I had to get up and waddle around to get it to stop then when I laid back down it started up again and the other leg was cramping up too at the same time.
My doctor told me leg cramps are usually from being dehydrated! Try drinking a glass of water before bed.
I am 24 weeks pregnant and I wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain. I have right lower leg cramps. Someone told me to stand up against the wall barefoot on a cold floor which actually worked for me. Also, drink the juice of olives in the can or pickles. I haven't tried that but I heard it works fast.
lol have you had the baby do a fulll 360 degree turn yet and elbow you in the ribs and kick you when stretching so that you can see the whole shape of his/her foot ? Does your whole belly jolt when your baby gets hiccoughs ?? Lol you think the stretching burning feeling is bad now wait till you are about to burst at two weeks late lol Don't worry it's all perfectly normal !!!! lol don't you just hate it when they wriggle about all night when you are trying to get some sleep??
My docter had prescribed me to aviane 28 about 3 almost 4 years ago because my periods were so bad like my cramps would be so bad that I would faint and I would be off school for a couple of days. I am 17 years old and I have NEVER had unprotected sex. But just 3 weeks ago I did. I have no symtoms dont think that I am pregnant. I am just worried that I may be.
I will try anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the last few nights, I have been getting the most painful cramps in my calves when I sleep, that I wake up crying out in pain!!! I had been told before that it is a lack of calcium that causes this, but I have increased my calcium at lot since I hit the 3rd tri. and was told the baby needs more calcium now to develop stronger bones!! What else can I do!! They hurt so bad!
Contributing to the trade deficit by purchasing cheap Chinese-made **** isn't helping the economy, and Wal-Mart's business, environmental, and labor practices have been devastating to local economies, plus they treat their workers like sh*t. I wouldn't set foot in a Wal-Mart (I don't even think there is one here in San Francisco), and I would only support somebody shopping at one if there are absolutely no other choices available.
It's not really painful, but it's not comfortable either. But this is my first pregnancy, so I was warned that I was gunna be cramping all over the place ALOT. But in the cervix?? I've been having this really runny white/clear **** come outta me that smells kinda weird? I mean it's not a STRONG odor, it's just weird smelling. I know that cm is normal, but it's increased since I've started approaching my 4th month, which will be tomorrow 16 weeks exactly.
My midwife told me too much calcium could cause cramps especially leg cramps. I was having them really bad and was also drinking tons of milk like you and so many tums for heart burn and she told me to but back on the two and i havent had a cramp since but i do have serious cases of restless leg which hits during the day and night and prevents any sleep and there is no cure for that.
Hi all, I was up all night with horrid leg pain. The muscles in my right foot and then my right calf started the fun. The worst was by far my left shin muscle. I have verry muscular legs due to the way that I walk. I have never had any MS problems with my legs. I was in teh French Quarter in NO last night. I did some walking with my family. I did not do more or faster than normal. Any ideas what would cause this? It was almost solid pain for 4 hours.
My fiance and I finally get intimate after a week or So and I start cramping up in my calves just as things were heating up. I was mortified. I never had cramps at all during this pregnancy and It's my first. As I got bigger we would only have sex in the spoon position, boring after a while but comfortable. Then yesterday morning we try missionary because I miss it and my calves start going haywire. We had to stop. I had to massage my calves; he tried to help.
I've tried heat, I've tried cold, I've tried Tylenol, I've tried elevating, stretching, massaging (which is painful) and everything in between. But it won't go away. I don't want to harass my doctor but I swear this pregnancy has been so much harder than my other 2! I didn't have these kinds of problems with my daughters. I just don't know what to do anymore.... any advice? Are they supposed to last this long?!
Last night I kept waking up to calf cramps/charley horses in my calf...I made myself get up and walk them off BUT when I was telling someone at work about this, they said they thought in pregnancy it meant you are deficient in something. Has anyone else heard this? Hopefully I wont have them tonight because between the peeing, rolling from side to side because of the sore hips and the calf cramps I got zero sleep last night!
I'm 35+1 and almost every day I get woken up by leg cramps. My right leg isn't too bad, but my left leg for some reason I get two bad cramps. Right after the other! It wouldn't be bad if this happened at around 8am, but I always cramp up around 3 am everyday. Also, I feel like my right leg is coming out it's socket when I walk. Anyone else experiencing this? What do you think it could be that's causing this?
These leg cramps are getting out of control. I get pain in my thighs and butt when I walk and crazy bad Charlie horses in my calves at night when I sleep. I had about ten in each leg in one night. And I walked funny for a few days after. They were so sore. I tried stretching, soaking them in warm water, and massaging them every day but it's not helping. Any ideas to make them stop? Thank u!
I had one while i was sleeping a few days ago and i woke up and started crying and made my fiance get up and rub my calf, my calf still hurts. I knew leg cramps were common in pregnancy, so i stretch my calfs muscles, and try to stay hydrated but sometimes you just can not avoid them.
30am I've had pretty uncomfortable lower back pain, once I was up for a while and drove my hubs to work I started getting cramps that almost felt like I was gonna start a heavy period. I rested about 2 hours then started doing errands, where I noticed it hurts just to drive now, everytime I had to pick up my foot to either stop my car or gas it, my hips hurt!
I am one day past IVF and am having lower menstrual cramps. Is this unusual. Did anyone else's doctor require them to have bedrest for 24 hours? Thanks for listening.
