I'm shocked right now! My ankles are swollen!! I'm only 20 weeks along and didn't realize it was possible this early! I never had swollen ankles or feet with my son's pregnancy. I don't expect that anyone else is actually having this already but am hoping someone can help me feel like less of a freak because that's exactly how i feel right now!
I don't have swollen ankles yet, but it is certainly very possible at 20 weeks. You should try putting your feet up at heart level at least an hour per day. Also try to avoid as much salt as possible. Oh, and make sure you aren't wearing tight socks or pantyhose and wear comfy shoes!
If the swelling persists and/or your hands or face become puffy be sure to get checked out by your doctor as that can signify preeclampsia.
I was just lurking krista and wanted to say that a girl in my old DDC is pregnant right now and is having the same problem so she made cucumber anklets and it helped take the swelling down!!! Maybe give it a try!!!!!
I've noticed a couple times, after a really long day, or a good workout session that my ankles are a bit swollen. My MIL gave me some support socks, they kind that help with circulation. I'd give them a try if I were you!
Okay thanks for the tips I'm definitely carrying much higher and bigger! The weather has been a little warmer the past couple days but not by much. I'll try propping my feet up and drinking lots of water. My next appointment is next week so i'll definitely bring it up then.
