Not trying to scare you (last thing I would want to do) but a girl in my DDC gained like 20 (maybe it was a little less) lbs in a week from fluid retention alone. She had a csection (planned) but was back in the hospital a couple days later because she couldn't breathe. All the fluid was putting extra work on her heart. Thankfully she is okay now but it got pretty serious there for awhile because they had to sedate her and put her on a ventilator :/
20 lbs is a LOT to gain in a week though and I am sure you haven't gained that much. I had no idea fluid retention could cause so many problems.
I do have a lot of fluid build up, and I have to get an EKG because of it next week. I am really swollen and I hate the way I look and feel right now because of it.
I am home now though and I updated my original post. Thank you so much ladies for the thoughts and well wishes.
Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!
