Legs And Hands Cramps At 8 Months Pregnant?
Tonight I am currently 8 months pregnant. My feet and hands feel cramped and it’s been going on for over a week. Even sometimes it’s hard to hold something at night and in the morning..thank you. Please respond
Cramps in the limbs can occur for several reasons, including:
Excessive physical activity
Pregnancy, especially during the last trimester of pregnancy, can be triggered due to a lack of calcium and magnesium
Lack of minerals
Cold temperature exposure
Pressure on nerves
Other medical conditions
If you are pregnant, cramps do often occur, so try to meet the nutritional needs of both vitamins and minerals and meet daily fluid needs so that there is no mineral deficiency that can cause cramps. Keep light activities to stretch your muscles, do light massages, compress the cramped area with warm water, and try not to put pressure on the cramped area, such as during sleep, so it doesn't cause cramps in the morning. You can also prop your feet up with pillows while you sleep to reduce cramps.
If cramps occur frequently, consult a doctor to find the cause and provide treatment.
Hope it is useful,
