Charley Horse During Pregnancy

Lil Tip: Helping a Charley Horse

Pregnant women often experience charley horses during their pregnancy. Expecting mamas tell tales of waking up in excruciating pain unable to straighten their legs. Having personally experienced such paralyzing moments, I mentioned it to a masseuse. She said to point the toes up toward the knee in a calf stretch. If that is too painful or impossible, you should use your hands and massage the calf in a circular motion. Also remember to stay hydrated during those taxing months!

I got charley horses in both legs in the middle of the night while pregnant with my son. It was torture. But, this trick worked every time —it was just hard to focus enough to do it.
