@ragini Hello, leg cramps are common in pregnancy because of pain during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. They can develop when blood vessels or nerves in the legs are compressed and it could be because of deficiency like magnesium. Most common causes of second-trimester pain do not require medical attention. However, pain at this stage of pregnancy can signify a problem, such as preterm labor, an infection, or another complication. See a doctor if you develop symptoms like sharp pain in the belly that persists, even after resting or changing positions, vomiting, chills, and fever. Before using pain relievers during the second trimester, it is vital to speak to a doctor. Some pain medications are not safe to take during pregnancy.
