You at 30 weeks
Leg cramps at night are common at around 29 to 32 weeks – there are things you can do to avoid and ease cramp.
You may find it hard to sleep because you cannot get comfortable. Try lying curled up on your side with a pillow between your legs and a cushion under your bump.
Itching is common in pregnancy and often gets better with self care, but sometimes it can be a symptom of a liver condition called intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), also known as obstetric cholestasis (OC).

Pregnancy can be a trigger for domestic abuse or violence, and existing abuse may get worse. Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional or psychological, and it puts you and your baby in danger.
If you're being abused by your partner or a family member, you can:
- speak to your midwife or doctor
- call the 24-hour freephone National Domestic Abuse Helpline, run by Refuge, on 0808 2000 247
