  • yeah bananas.. I had that problem if you don't eat enough potassium it will get worse I had points where I'd wake up screaming in pain.

  • My doctor also told me to make sure I'm getting enough calcium because that can cause leg cramps. I've been having them for awhile at night.

  • BTW, if you know the first day of your last period, you can easily look up a due date calculator online and find out when your'e due date is. If you know the first day of your last period, you count how far along you from that.

  • yea but its weird cause my last period was 3 days late and i thought i was preggo after my breast starting hurting and a week later i went to the doc for a regular check and he did a urine test it came back neg so he told me to wait and see if i got my period and i never did , So i dunno if that really was my period i think it is but its just strange how like 2 days after my last period i started getting pregnancy symptoms my hubby n i had sex like right before my last period so i dunno if i was pregnant or when i even got pregnnat thats y im going in tommrow to find out
