Ryansgirl:  I often get cramping in my legs, and I started taking magnesium in the midlde of my pregnancy, and I haven’t had a leg crap since, like, February or March. It’s been amazing. Maybe check into that?

I realize yours are from exercise, but it may still help. Also, make sure the stay hydrated and stretch before and after working out. I’m not sure what else you can do right now apart from maybe some Icy Hot or Biofreeze.

Be sure to eat plenty of protein. Massage also helps me along with stretching.
