  • Lack of potassium or something like that. Eat bananas and they'll stop. Worked for me!.

  • I agree with the potassium, but also what helped me was walking. I did that when I wasn't doing anything.

  • I had when I had my first but later when I had my second and third I hadn't had that. People said it' lack of vitamin B in the blood and I guess it might be true since I took dr. prescripted vitamin with the first, later I took herbal natural vitamin and never had the problem.

  • its lack of potassium. try eating bananas or drinking pickle juice.. I am 35 wks pregnant with my second child and found that drinking a few gulps of pickle juice helps to alleviate the leg cramps but they VERY common when pregnant.. So good luck in finding something that helps!
