My leg and foot cramps have improved considerably since I began taking a calcium supplement a week ago. Hope this helps...

This happens to a lot of pregnant women too. Calcium, b vitamins and hot baths help too. Just make sure you get plenty of calcium.

Re: Suffering from severe leg aches HELP!

Yes, I had this several times over the transition. Just rest when you can and also try to move so you don't stiffen up. It goes away eventually. Had it for about six weeks this winter and then off an on. When I realized what it was, I just fought through it and used a heating pad when I could. It's part of the meno.
