  • Bananas help with the leg cramps. Or anything with potassium in it. If you have a big enough tub, laying in it relieves the pressure on your back because the baby floats. Are you sleeping with a pillow between your knees? That helps also.

  • I was going to say eat a banana too! LOL That always worked great for me. Try and keep stretched out the best that you can. Good Luck!
