  • I have and I'm 8 wks prego today.My calves hurt though and yes I have also felt the twitch-like feeling as well.I think my potassium is low though.
    All I can say is I'm sure its normal ,but if your hurting in your calves like I am I'd say its potassium all the way.Just eat plenty of Potassium filled foods and drink plenty of water.Otherwise if your experiencing no pain and just the twith-like stuff yeah just your nerves and your body under a little added stress but nothing to worry about! HAGD!
