How Can I Relieve My Pregnancy Leg Cramps?


Leg cramps become more common from the fifth month of pregnancy onwards. They may be particularly worse after a period of inactivity like getting up from bed or chair after office hours.


During a cramp, gently stretch the calf of your leg by curling your toes upward, toward your knee. Alternately squeeze your calf muscles gently for one or two minutes.


Include plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. Rich sources of Potassium and calcium like banana and oranges should be eaten regularly.
