Answer: Hello dear, Mussels stretching is the main reason for leg cramps and another body pain..... Stay off your feet. Avoid standing for long periods. When you can, sit with your feet up and occasionally rotate your feet at the ankles and gently flex your feet to stretch your calf muscles. Sleep on your left side. This takes pressure off the large vein that returns blood from the lower half of your body to your heart. Be physically active every day. Take walks, ride a stationary bike, Stand or walk in the pool. Foot massage and reflexology, might help decrease foot , thigh and ankle pain during pregnancy. Also, try to take (2.4 liters) of water a day during pregnancy. Although mild foot thigh and ankle pain during pregnancy is normal, sudden pain that is painful — especially if it's in one leg only — could be an indication of a blood clot. In that situation better to consult your doctor.
Answer: Keep pillows at your back also under the legs and between legs.... Also don't sit in one position for a longer time.... Walk a bit and rest with your back with proper poster...... For cramps gently ask your husband or any one at home to give you a message on your leg before sleeping for proper blood circulation.. Hope it's helpful..
