My ankles and feet have been swelling up for a few months, but now it's pitting. Maybe I just never really pressed on it before, but I checked yesterday and was freaked out to see my finger dent just stay there!! Is that normal?? I have my 37 week appt on Monday, so I'll mention it to my OB then. But I was just wondering! Grody!

I think, unfortunately, that it is normal. Its gross huh?? Its been pitting for me for weeks now! And my swelling never (yes even after propping overnight) goes down. I hate it!

Are yours sore? Mine are sore and has a stinging sensation because its so 'tight' the swelling is...it goes all the way up to my calves!

Jessie is right its MISERABLE lots of water and rest!! Def. mention it to your OB but its normally something mine notice...they picked up on mine 6 weeks ago and have been on my case ever since Eww can anyone else move the fluid, DH tried to be sweet (bless his heart) and rub my feet and he was like "uh love, im moving something under your skin and this does not look normal" LOL it actually hurt like a mofo so i made him stop but ughh def. gross and Demetria im with you, propping mine up doesnt change them...just means I can see them..and Id rather not

Demetria, mine aren't sore at this point. They just look disgusting. I guess I should have noticed it before when the straps on my flip flops leave dents too. Haha!

I've mentioned the swelling to my OB before, but not the pitting since I just noticed it. My blood pressure as been ok so far, and the swelling usually goes down by the morning. But I'm back to "Stay Puff Marshmallow Man" within a few hours of being on my feet. Sucktastic.

I am jealous that you can still wear flip flops! hahaha It does suck though....I have like, these huge globs of fat feet with these tiny little toes sticking out from the fat lol. My ankles look like I have donuts around them! haha my midwife gave me some advice but nothing much more than what we have already shared here.

Jess, your brave taking photos and all...lol yeah you can count on me *not* doing that. Mine is back at donut mode, but they went *all* the way down overnight!!! My feet were skinny again! I propped them on 3 fluffy pillows and laid on my left side all night. My hips were a little sore but I got a break from Ele-feet for a few hrs this morning!
