I hate that...happens at night to me sometimes. I was told to drink some water (dehydration makes it worse I guess) and if they are awful and I can't deal with it before bed, take a benedryl.

Im not sure what causes it except for the lack of potassium, but it happened to me a lot.  I usually tried to keep up eating lots of bananas and then drinking enough too.

 Mine do it to and I don't know why but it is generally at night and I just feel like I am twitchy in my legs so I shift and I move and they get better. Weird b/c when I'm not pregnant I'm fine.
