For mommies: Did you swell during pregnancy? Was it really bad or just a little bit? Could you put your rings on? did you find anything that seemed to help with the swelling?
For pregnant ladies: Have you started swelling yet? Has it been bad or just a little bit?
I swelled with both of my pregnancies. I don't think it started until around the beginning of my 3rd trimester. My hands would swell really bad but then I would drink a ton of water and that seemed to help every time. With my first pregnancy I had a hard time wearing my wedding ring but with Jacob the swelling wasn't that bad.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
I swelled a little with each pregnancy, not bad but enough to where I couldn't wear my wedding rings by the end of the 2nd tri. It started a little earlier this last pregnancy. Toward the very end with Kody, I found that my fingers would swell up when I went for walks. I don't know what caused that! It would get better if I'd lay down after.
I swell a little too. It hasn't been bad enough to take my wedding ring off but if I tried it would probably take a little effort to get it off. Water helped me. I haven't noticed any swelling yet this time.
