    I woke up at 4am this morning screaming in agony, scared the crap out of my OH as he thought something had happened to the baby!! I had cramp in my calf and it was the worst I've ever ever had cramp. (I normally only get it in my toes!)

    Is this something I have to get used to?!

    Ouch!

    I get them quite a lot during pregnancy. If you try and eat more potassium that supposedly helps a lot.

    Bananas are full of potassium. Unfortunately I HATE bananas :wacko: which is probably why I get cramp so badly!
