Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
One of the weekly pregnancy updates I get also said it's perfectly normal to get cramps as your muscles start to try strengthening themselves so they can push the baby out during labour. Some cream and a light tummy massage around the sore areas has helped relieve cramping for me.
Plus, if you're tired or dehydrated, try a glass of water, lying still for half an hour and apparently eating bananas can help ease muscle cramps too. If you do get quite a lot of pain though, definitely bring it up with your doc at the next check-up (which you should be due for this week or in the next couple of weeks). HTH.
