Hey girls, just popped over here to have a look and i think i can help. Try drinking Tonic water... i swore by it in my pregnancy as it contains quinine and can help with leg aches.cramps. Hope this helps xx

Hi Dinks- I had this with my first baby and used to get it so bad my thumb would go numb and wake me up! I went to the docs and they said its carpel tunnel syndrome, which I think is when the ligaments have pressure on them in the wrist hence the cramps. Not much to be done I am afraid- sorry- I remember it being reallly annoyingxxx

No leg cramps just restless legs which is horrible at night and a few random cramps in my hands.

I was worried that is was signs of bad circulation/blood clots - I am seeing my GP about it tomorrow to put my mind at ease. I will let you know what he says.

New to the group, hello!
Hi I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm new to this group, but not new to ttc. I've got children to my ex, but my husband and I are ttc our first baby together. I hope it's ok that I will be posting with lots of questions as it's been a long time since I was ttc (9 years, eek!!) so I've forgotten a lot of things. Babydust to all!! 😊 x
