I am 32 weeks pregnant... i am getting severe leg cramps during the night and in the morning. Does anyone else get these? I don't recall getting them wih any of my previous pregnancies. Is there any way of preventing them?

I had leg cramps in my 3 trimester also. They were "Charlie Horse" cramps in my calves. They are very common at this point in your pregnancy, and the only thing i've ever heard about preventing them (and I heard it long before I was pregnant) is to increase the amount of salt in your diet. I would ask your doctor what he recommends. Also, as soon as I would feel one coming on, I would immediately get up and walk around to stretch the muscles. Good luck!
