Hahaha yeah I've scared hubby a few times! It is hard to put into practice because when you're in that much pain your instant reaction is to tense up, just keep reminding yourself not to. Before they would last up to a minute now they're gone in 10-20 seconds

I found a magnesium tablet a day has kept them away, I think it's blackmores ones that say suitable for pregnancy. I don't take the full dose but if I get one will take the full dose the following day. Have only had 3 since taking the tablets

Glad to hear it was nothing too serious even though it still hurts. Now you can put your mind at ease and get a good sleep...that's if the cramps stay away!
For the other posters...Does the magnesium help normal leg cramps...you know the ones that make you sit bolt upright in the middle of the night when you're not pregnant?

You can also try a hydralite icey pole or drink before bed... A GP told me to give it a try, as it helps replenish your natural salts. Worked wonders and reduced the number of cramps I was having significantly.

You can buy magnesium gel & rub it on your legs - works great. Magnesium is absorbed better through the skin..

Unfortunately i too suffered these horrible things whilst pregnant and even during birth it was horrible and magnesium tablets did help i hope they subside for you.

As everyone has mentioned magnesium
helped me hugely, I got it in powder form... Disgusting, but I would have a glass before bed.

another magnesium fan. I was taking them before pregnancy too to aid with chronic, terrible tension headaches that triggered migraines. Really helps with relieving tension in muscles. I used to use a powder form that you mix in with juice, now I use a capsule version of that powder form. Good luck they are horrible!
