My legs,ankles and feet have been swelling a lot this past 2 weeks off and on but the last 3 days have been constant. My hands swell too but not as bad as my feet. I try to keep them up as much as i can at my desk and at home. I can just tell that my shoes are tight, might have to switch to flip flops lol
I had a TON last pregnancy, and I had one day last week where my ankles were huge! I don't know what caused it, but I'm thinking maybe I hadn't been drinking enough that day. It seemed to be an isolated incident.

Im surprised at how mild my swelling is this time. Last time with my daughter it was horrible. I gained 8lbs/ week the last 3 weeks. I was so puffy my feet and ankles had permanent indents and even had bad carpel tunnel.
This time its much more mild and I'm loving it!

yep, mine is quite mild as of now. I can still see my ankle bones. But I'm sure they'll be cankles in a few weeks. Last pregnancy I gained alot in the last few weeks of just water retention, then afterwards, it just alllll goes away. Its amazing.
Mine are swelling a lot! I didn't get like this with my two previous pregnancies. I can't wear my normal shoes anymore...I have to wear flip flops or my running shoes. My midwife was pretty concerned about it today, but my blood pressure is normal, so all is good as of now.
Mine have been swelling some. Is your bp ok? My swelling started when mine went up! My feet are moderate and my hands are mild! since I have been on bedrest the swelling has been better. At least we are pregnant in April so that we can wear flip flops!!! I have fallen in LOVE with sandles/flip flops!!!
Yup, lots of swelling. My feet are the worst but I can feel it in my calves and my fingers too! I can't fit into any of my shoes for work so i have been wearing slippers t work. I wish it was just a little warmer so i can wear flip flops. My bp is fine so the doctor isn't concerned at all.
