My name is Allirah Fisher, I am 20 years old and a first time Mummy. Currently 31 weeks and due on the 21st of May.
One of the biggest things I am struggling with during my pregnancy at the moment is cramps in my calves. I used to get them about once a week, a couple of times a night - although this week I've had them every single night for four nights. On Tuesday night they were so bad that I woke up screaming and couldn't stretch them out.. both my legs were cramping for over a few minutes each time. I just sat their screaming and crying. It kept happening over 10 times that night.
Since that night I have not been able to walk properly. When I walk I have to keep my feet flat otherwise I get a striking pain in my carve.
Spoke to my midwife - she said to get some magnesium supplements.
Would love to hear everyone elses thoughts/experiences...
