One of the most common symptoms during pregnancy is cramping of legs and feet. The symptoms may include sharp pains and spasms that can extend to the calf or arch of the foot. Cramps happen during the end of the day or while taking rest. You can get rid of the spasm by massaging the area and making the muscles to stretch out to relieve the pain. In certain cases, women may experience mild cramping in the lower pelvic area. They usually come with a dull pain in the pelvic region and resemble the period cramps. Sometimes there will be only mild pain.
