For the past little while I have been randomly getting charlie horse like cramps in my stomach . Most recently it was when I was running across the street, but it sometimes also happens if I walk too fast or when I was laughing too hard. They are not particularly painful or anything, just feel really weird and that is the closest thing I can associate them with.
Does anyone know what this is? Hubby suggested that maybe I am low on potassium and that maybe I am a little dehydrated?
The potassium seems to have really helped. Not sure what exactly was going on but I ate a bananna and a power bar (both loaded in potassium) I also had a tiny bit of No Salt and a cup of water. I did not have one of the cramps all day long.
I started 3 days ago with braxton hicks... same feeling as you. And have had them daily since. it seems kind of early to me, when reading everyone about everyone else and their experience, but we'll see how things plan out. Mine started after working 3 12-hour shifts in a row, which I guarantee you I was dehydrated after. So we'll see.. if they continue too much I'll probably call the dr just to make sure I'm not doing too much activity or something.
