ni ade skit tips amik dr internet nak kurgkn leg cramps...
Circulation changes, extra pregnancy weight gain and your growing baby can cause pressure on muscles, nerves and blood vessels, resulting in cramps or sharp shooting pains in your legs.

Remedy: regular exercise and massage can help keep joints supple and ward off cramps. Try to get out for a walk during the day and give your feet and calf muscles a work-out before bed by moving them in a circular motion (as you would do on a plane to avoid DVT!) Eat lots of iron/calcium-rich foods and if the pain gets really bad, try applying heat or wear some supportive tights. Drinking Indian tonic water that contains quinine can also help. (source)

Leg cramps during pregnancy are very common especially in the third trimester and more often at night. The cause of these leg cramps is not completely clear. Some experts believe leg cramps are caused by carrying around extra weight during pregnancy while others think that the pressure of the uterus on blood vessels is the cause. Whatever the reason for leg cramps during pregnancy, they can be extremely painful. If you do find yourself stricken with one of these debilitating leg cramps, one of the following suggestions may provide some relief.

Instructions
Step 1
Try to immediately straighten your leg and flex your foot heel first with your toes toward your shin. This may hurt at first, but it should gradually ease the spasm. Pointing your toes downward can bring on leg cramps or make them worse.
Step 2
“Drawing” the alphabet with your foot is another way to urge the muscle to relax.
Step 3
Apply heat in the form of a heating pad, hot water bottle or a warm towel to the affected area.
Step 4
Massage the muscle that is cramping until the muscle loosens and begins to relax. You can do this yourself or have a partner help you.
Step 5
If you are able, walk around for a few minutes to further loosen the affected muscle.
