  • lol..I wouldnt say that a Charlie Horse is a sign of pregnancy...but a side effect of.
    But only you would know your own body. I kinda knew I was pregnant before I took the pregnancy test with my 2nd because I got constipated,LOL. I never told anyone that because I knew they would think I was being weird but its just the way my body had felt with my 1st pregnancy so when I was preg with #2...I just kinda knew.
    Good Luck!

  • not necessarily...just a sign you need more potassium. Especially if you just got off your period less than a week ago. It's probably too early for any signs yet.

  • God I hope not!! I get them all the time!! LOL!

    EVeryone has different symtoms. You know your body. If your curious get a HPT and check.

  • Not every thing is a sign of pregnancy.

  • I don't believe that it. Trust your instinct. It can happen during pregnancy but I don't believe as a sign of pregnancy. I had charlie horses all the time during my first pregnancy with this one I am 18 wks and I haven't had any with this one just spasms in my legs. Good Luck everyone is different.

  • I wouldn't assume it was a sign of pregnancy.. Though I did get them frequently with all of mine. :) It's a sign of low potassium, as a PP said... Eat some bananas and keep us posted. :)
