While pregnant with kid 1 and 2, my nights were sleepless and painful. It wasn’t even the constant peeing that bugged me! It was the intense leg cramps while trying to sleep.
- I would sleep on my left side.
- Sleep on my right side.
- Tried sleeping with a pillow between my legs.
- Tried sleeping with my legs elevated.
NOTHING, BUT LEG CRAMP PAIN PERSISTED!
My doctor with my 2nd child offered 1 word that helped combat the evil leg cramps. BANANAS.
Gwen Stefani style - B - A - N - A - N - A - S!
Yes, bananas were the answer to my pregnant leg cramps.
Bananas have potassium. Potassium help naturally prevent leg cramps. If you are dealing with leg cramps, give it a try.
