    Cramp is the equivalent of going to the gym for me !! So yes I could barely walk down the stairs the other day coz mine was so bad in the night. Felt like I had been spinning for 10 hours lol.

    Tri-hopping!

    Yes, I used to get cramp when I was a teenager and it was down to lack of salt in my diet. The last few weeks I have had it a couple of times - I woke up with it on Monday night screaming in pain and it is still tight and sore now.

    I am putting it down to lack of potassiam in my diet this time and have started making sure that I am eating at least 1 bannana every day.

    I usually do eat a banana every day and I have salt on everything (I know, so bad) so I don't know why it keeps happening :/ xx

    Yeah it can be sore for a few days. I find a good firm massage helps, I suppose it is to do with lactic acid build up and a massage helps move it away, hurts a bit if it is being done right but it is kind of a nice pain lol

    I had AWFUL cramp last night! Woke me up about 1am, was walking round for about 20 mins because every time I relaxed it came back. This is definitely my worst pregnancy symptom!

    I can offer no advice I'm afraid, just sympathy xxx

    I had it for the first time in my pregnancy the other night. It's EVIL!!!! Woke up yelping!!
    Try and do some stretches before you go to bed. Just little ones.
    I eat 3 bananas a day (since tri 1) so I doubt it's lack of potassium! Although you could say that's why I've only had it once?!
