My Body – Pregnancy Week 32

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 32

How are you feeling? Have you been feeling like you are now waddling, instead of walking? This is a good thing! This week, your body is producing a hormone, called relaxin, which loosens and relaxes your pelvis, allowing for more mobility during pregnancy. It is also responsible for this new method of locomotion.

Do you have leg cramps keeping you awake at night? This is common, and there are a few things you can do to prevent them. Take breaks throughout your day to rest, and get off of your feet. Continue to drink lots of water (in case your muscles are just dehydrated), and eat a banana – your calcium and potassium levels might be low.

    I take Magnesium Oxide, which helps a lot. My leg cramps/restless legs happen at night, so I take a pill when I start to get crampy and it helps almost immediately!

    I have been eating a lot of bananas 🙂

    i seem to only get leg cramps when im sitting up. but its not like normal leg cramps. they start in my hip n spread into my thigh and it just feels like my leg is numb and burning at the same time

      I had the samething & when i went to have it checked out i had a DVT (a blood clot in my veins). Im glad i went bcuz those could really be dangerous but i hope urs is just leg cramps but if it gets to the point of very painful & mobility bcomes very differcult contact ur doctor. But good luck hope everything gets better.
