Swelling question
Do you swell evenly? Or does one side tend to be more swollen then the other? My right ankle and calf is quite a bit more swollen then my left.

Re: Swelling question
My right ankle swells more than my left, but I also sit more naturally with that one dropped down and the other up often.

Re: Swelling question
I just noticed my left outer ankle is puffy/swollen after my shower this morning. Hoping it's nothing, but going to have husband check my bp when he gets home (I have to watch for pre-e). I shouldn't have googled it b/c I'm reading uneven swelling can also be a sign of blood clots, which my dr discussed with me last appt due to veracose vein issues in my right leg.

Re: Swelling question
I swell pretty evenly on both sides. Luckily it's manageable this pregnancy and goes away after I put my feet up for awhile. I had horrible edema and swelling with DD that wouldn't go away even after I put my feet up. It was constant and didn't fully go away until a couple days after she was born. My BP was always within normal range so it had nothing to do with that.

Re: Swelling question
Blah.. swelling's certainly more common now and for me, it's fairly evenly distributed between right and left side. Fingers and ankles/feet seem to be the worst!

Re: Swelling question
It seems like maybe my joints are getting stiff instead of me swelling? Maybe swelling inside them?

Whichever side I sleep on is worse.

Re: Swelling question
I definitely swell evenly. It sucks. I'm ALWAYS swollen! It's terrible. I am even having a hard time closing my hands all the way as of late and I've just recently started experiencing the Carpal Tunnel of pregnancy. Every morning I wake up and everything from my elbow down on my right arm is completely numb. It's very strange.

Re: Swelling question
Hmm. I never really noticed that one side was worse than the other. No swelling yet but I will remember to notice this time.
