Woke up screaming in pain.....

That is what DH said. I had a horrible Charlie horse he said. I don't remember a thing but my calf is killing me. I never got charlie horses with DS until the end of my pregnancy.

    Yeah.  These suck.  I get them a lot when pregnant.  I always have to get up & walk around to get them loosened up.

    I did that exact thing a few weeks ago, although I do remember it. I make sure now to do some calf stretches before bed because that hurt so much! I freaked out my husband too, but he started to help me massage my calf to loosen it up again.

    This happened to me last night too!  I've had it happen prepregnancy so I knew how to get rid of it, but it still hurts horribly bad!!  My calf was still sore this morning too...

    This happened to me last night at 4:30 AM.  I woke up screaming in pain.  My calf is still so sore today.  I'm drinking water like no other to try and prevent them, but apparently it wasn't enough.

    Increasing your potassium intake can help.  Do you eat bananas?  I ate one every day  from 2nd tri to 3rd tri.

    I was going to say the same thing.

    I had gotten these leg cramps twice in one month.  Always while I was sleeping and I woke up in extreme pain.  But ever since I've been taking Potassium pills and Magnesium pills along with my Prenatals, DHA, and Calcium gummies I haven't gotten another one and it's been more than a month.  Try this, maybe it will work for you too!
