Pregnancy can bring a lot of joy, but also many discomforts. Talking about it with others who are pregnant can often be a big relief. On I-am-pregnant, we strive to make this as easy and as much fun as possible.
Im 19 weeks and have woken up this morning with very swollen hands. I dont have any other signs of Preeclampsia not dizziness or pains anywhere else!!! I had a scan only 2 days ago and they said the baby was fine and have a midwife’s appointment 2 morrow. Does anyone else suffer from this????? Worried. 🙁
I am 25 weeks and have had some swelling, BUT today my feet, ankle, and calf has swelled up like a balloon!!! Only one though, the other side has seemed to stay its normal semi-swollen self… Is this really normal????
I’m 32 weeks pregnant and have just noticed I have swelling in my feet & ankles, I know its normal to have swelling but I can’t help worrying! As I’m at work I can’t really do much to prevent it, I have my legs up but they’re not above my bottom. When I get home I’m going to have a lavendar foot bath with cool water. Plus its a very sunny day in England today!!
So i have swelling in my lower calves and ankles and the tops of my feet (swince like week 30). But it helps when I elevate for sure. My hands were buggin me though. Could hardly brush my teeth when I woke up b/c my grip on the toothbrush was so fat and loose. THEN one day my hands went back to normal (almost) and I figured out I had eaten bananas a few hours before. It has something to do with potassium. Anyway TRY it and let me know if I am crazy!? It totally works for most of the day. HAd to try and hlep b/c that is sooo simple!!!
for the past couple of days i started having swelling in my right foot (on top) its really starting to bother me ive told my doctor and he said its normal at the end of pregnancy to start to swell and to make sure im drinking enough fluids a day and to watch my salt intake
Would they give you fluid pills if you went to the ER? I have no more butt as my legs & feet are swollen all the way up. I’ve had a horrible pain in my feet for weeks without the swelling going away night after night, my doctors say its normal, but I have sores on my ankle due to them blowing up so badly. My mom say it looks like the skin is starting to break open on my feet/ankle area.
Has anyone had POST pregnancy swelling? I wasnt swelling untill after I had my son, well a little in like the l;ast week…but im 8 days pp now and my feet hands anf face are still swollen! I am drinking ALOT of water as I am breastfeeding, is that maybe why? should I like take a water pill?
