Several times in the last few months I've startled Lovely Husband awake with my agonised groans and gasps, clutching at my calf muscle as another leg cramp hits. I had talked to the midwives and the pharmicist and was upping my dairy intake (for the calcium) and taking a magnesium supplment to try and prevent them. I hadn't had another since starting this regime last month but this morning, I got jolted awake with that familiar feeling again. My calf muscle was bulging and was probably the most well defined it's ever been. And now it'll be sore for a day or two. Sigh.
