Hi
Mild pain is normal, if too much pain u have to chk with ur doctor. Rest is more important. You must sleep well for ur body to function well. Relax, have warm milk before going to bed, try to read good books, listen to music, meditate

It is normal to have cramp during pregnancy but u can do this to prevent:
Stretch your calf muscles immediately by straightening your leg, heel first, and gently flexing your toes back toward your shins. (Don't point your toes while stretching. It can make the muscle contract and worsen the cramp.) This stretch might hurt at first, but it will ease the spasm and gradually make the pain go away.After you stretch, massage the muscle or warm it with a hot water bottle t
Don't stand or sit with your legs crossed for long periods of time.Stretch your calf muscles regularly during the day and several times before you go to bed.Rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes whenever you sit down, eat dinner, or watch TV.Take a walk;every day (unless your healthcare provider has advised you not to exercise).Lie down on your left side to improve circulation to and from your legs.Drink water regularly;to stay hydrated during the day
Try warm bath before sleeping this might help in getting sleep n cramp as well
