Try these tips for keeping leg cramps at bay:
•Avoid standing or sitting with your legs crossed for long periods of time.
•Stretch your calf muscles regularly during the day and several times before you go to bed.
•Rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes when you sit, eat dinner, or watch TV.
•Take a walk every day, unless your midwife or doctor has advised you not to exercise.
•Avoid getting too tired. Lie down on your left side to improve circulation to and from your legs.
•Stay hydrated during the day by drinking water regularly.
•Try a warm bath before bed to relax your muscles.
