This week my bump has started feeling really heavy is this normal cos i cant remember it bein like this with my previous pregnancy?

Also keep wakeing in the night with a horrendous pain in my left calf muscle it was so painful last night i cried. Think it must be the muscle spasming but it goes completly dead and massive pain, i have to lift my leg out of bed to put it on the floor, then the pain eases slowly- Anyone else got anything similar to this?

Im 24 wks aswell and i was only saying to DH just today how heavy and uncomfortable im already starting to feel (this is 3rd DC), and lastnight was the first night ive had trouble getting to sleep because feeling so bloody uncomfortable.
God knows how im going to get through the next few months!

It sounds like you've been getting cramp, which is something ive been getting for a few weeks now. Ive heard bananas is good for cramp but im not 100% sure.

Good luck with rest of pregnancy!

I believe a banana and a glass of milk a day try it and see!

Lots of walking is good for leg cramp, I found.
