Charlie horses in groin?

For the past couple of weeks I've been getting these horrible charlie horses right on either side of my whoohaa, so like my groin but high up- they almost drop me to my knees they're so painful! Anyone else? I don't know if it's just nerves being hit by the baby or if I need to up my potassium or something?

Oh that is just WRONG! How terrible! Sorry you're dealing with that, but I have no advice. At least you don't have much longer to suffer!

Ouch! I get the boots to the cervix a lot but have not felt what you are describing. I can imagine that would be horrible! The end of pregnancy is just so fun Smile

isn't it?! lol I'm guessing it nerves or something because it happened to me in the shower the other night and I could see my muscle going into spasms---yikes! Thank goodness I don't have that much longer - 7 days and counting!

I agree with the PPs that that sounds horrible!!! I got a lot of Charley horses in my feet during the pregnancy, but never in my groin!! So sorry you're dealing with that!! I don't even know how you would get that to stop!! :eek:

Oh yes have I gotten them!! I dont remember them with my others either tho maybe I had them and blocked them out. The pain radiates from the side of my whoohaa down my thigh and it sucks sooo bad! Sorry you are dealing with them too.

Oh yes!!! I have it on the inner right thigh...it feels like a groin injury...it totally sucks!! The problem I am having is that they will come, then stay for a couple hours, then go again... these are the things that make us willing to do whatever it takes to get these LOs out of us! It's our body's way of making us choose childbirth over gestation!! Smile
