Hi,

Congratulations on your little pink bundle. I can't say that I have had that experience...


Is this your first C section? I have a hard time trying to figure out the tie to the C... are you watching your salt intake (to make sure that you have enough?) Post Partum is always a very sweaty time for me... so if you aren't getting enough salt or calcium that could cause cramping...

I have had 5 sections, and am working on #6- I really needed the stretching during this last pregnancy and having been doing prenatal pilates. That has been wonderful in keeping the leg cramps at bay. I also see a chiropractor weekly. Mine comes from my hip. That is probably why when she massaged your butt, it was tight. When I get mine in the middle of the night, it feels like my hip area just needs a good crack to relieve pressure. Right now I hurt my foot and haven't been able to exercise this week. I am trying to relax as much as possible, this baby is coming in 4 weeks. But with relaxing also comes tight, cramping muscles everywhere!- mary-
