last week i had 3 nights in row of them in my right calf. i woke up crying and in so much pain . during the days i was hurting from it still. nothing since. i did not change anything, they just have not happened since.
I got one in my right calf like 3 nights ago and I can barely put any pressure down on my leg because it hurts so bad. Then last night I got one in my left leg and it is so sore that it is hard to put pressure on it either. So I look like a very sorry sucker trying to walk.
Mine are becoming more frequent and more painful as well. I never had them when I was pregnant before. Oh I do remember having them once with Zoie, but this has been the worse!! The toe flexing thing is only starting to make them worse!
Missing my sweet little boy, RIP Baby Sullivan Parker
I get them when I stretch my legs too. When I'm awake enough to be aware of what I'm doing I don't stretch them, but sometimes I forget not to when I'm still mostly asleep, and then I get a cramp. Luckily pointing my toes up still works to get rid of it fast for me, and my muscles aren't even sore afterwards.
I've heard that stretching your calf muscles before you go to bed helps prevent them, but I don't get cramps regularly enough to bother stretching every night so I can't vouch for that one. Worth a shot though!
