I am currently 9 and half weeks pregnant and my legs pull every evening. It gets so bad that I can not sit in one place for to long. Has anyone had this symptom, if so are there any remedies for it?

  • I used to get charlie horses like 10 times a day when I was pregnant with my second child. They were so bad that I could tell when they were coming and learned how to work them out before they got bad. It was awful. I was told to eat more bananas for the potasium, didn't help me, but maybe it will help you.

  • If you are talking about cramps eat bananas. The potassium helps. Or find other foods you like with high potassium levels.

  • I always heard that was from a lack of potassium. Try bananas.

  • Thank you all for the info. The pulling is like charlie horses. I need to stay away from the bananas due to the lovely symptom of constipation. I have been taking postassium vita and need to drink more water.
