This is my second pregnancy, and it’s been 8 years since my first!

I’ve been getting leg cramps in my calves (which are huge—shoutout to my Filipino/Polynesian ancestors) and OMG THEY ARE SO UNBEARABLE. I didn’t have them with my first.

Last night, I shot right up out of my sleep and started crying, rolling around in bed, basically screaming.

My husband was so worried but managed to massage the pain away, though I don’t think you’re supposed to do that, I honestly am so afraid to go to bed sometimes. It’s such an awful sensation to wake up to.

Anyone else experiencing this? What do you do to soothe it?
