Only 5 weeks abs is driving me mad! Any tips?

I hate it so much! According to my yoga teacher, calf stretches help, but I can't say I've noticed a massive difference. I seem to get them about half an hour after I fall asleep, which is rubbish, but if I get up and walk around for a minute that seems to sort them for the rest of the night. A high dose of magnesium general helps with muscle cramping, but I haven't remembered to ask my midwife if this is safe in pregnancy. Looking forward to hearing some tips!

I'm sure bananas and tonic water help.
Also you can buy a magnesium spray.
Good luck
