The last two times I was pregnant I don't remember having issues with swelling until I was in my 3rd trimester. At my 16 week check up my Doctor said I had some trace swelling. In the last week I've been keeping my rings off most of the day due to swelling fingers and have been noticing some swelling in my ankles. Like tonight, I took my socks off an hour ago and still have sock lines on my ankles.

I know you're supposed to drink lots of water and keep your feet propped up. Maybe it was just all the running around for the holidays that got to me. I haven't really been acting pregnant and taking it easy at all other than some nights when I'm having round ligament pain, then I just prop my feet up for about 15-20 minutes or so. How much do the rest of you prop your feet up during the day?

Has anyone else had swelling issues already? Has anyone ever had them this early (almost 20 weeks) and had it be something else? Any other tips to reduce swelling would be great.

Any dizzy spells, seeing spots or headaches? If so I'd call your doctor to let her know on Monday.

I'd just suggest keeping up with liquids, cut back on sodium, wear loose comfortable clothing and don't over do it.

Certainly let your doctor know though. They may want to see you or can at least give you better advice!


Thank you for my beautiful siggy, *Kiliki*!Visit My Blog

I just started having some minor swelling this week. I think it's because my sodium intake has been high this week. I really need to cut it out so I can avoid all the swelling I had during my pregnancy with my son. Make sure to drink a TON of water. It'll help some.
Thanks claire1979 for the beautiful siggy!

I've never had any swelling with any of my pregnancies. Poor thing!

My feet are already swelling. Drink lots and lots of water and really watch your sodium intake.
