Whos ankles/feet are swelling?

The sock depressions have started around my ankles. It is super gross. Not pee yourself while you vomit gross....but still gross.

Oh flipflop weather...where art thou?

Time to elevate my legs more and drink more water.

Sock indentations here too!! Ugh! I hate it! I've been bad about drinking water, so I'm getting better now. But with my 1st pregnancy, no amount of water prevented the swelling. Blast!

I am also having sock indentations. I have stopped wearing anything longer than ankle socks b/c it is so annoying to me! For the most part I am wearing loafers with no socks, and then at home wearing "slipper socks" that aren't tight.

I have been very lucky with all my pregnancies and have not ever had much swelling. The only thing I notice is later on in pregnancy my feet feel wider and I have a hard time wearing my ballet flats comfortably.

No swelling here yet except for once when I was on my feet almost all day and that wasnt so much a swelling as my feet felt like they were too wide in my shoes.

Early on in my first pregnancy my feet began to swell. I had elephant legs by the end. This time around my legs have been slower to swell.

But I just looked at them now and I see that my ankle bone is hard to see. So. Swelling is definitely happening.

No swelling of feet. Hands are another story. I cannot eat at chain restaurants. The salt they use makes my finger joints swell.

I never had any swelling whatsoever with DD even if I wore heels and was on my feet at work all day but this time it started last week. My ankles and feet got SO swollen. it doesn't seem to matter whether I stand or sit, but elevating in the evening brings it down for the morning. So terribly annoying.

I have noticed sock indentations, but they don't appear to be swollen.

Yep I am swelling already I am hoping it doesn't get too bad. I swelled a lot last pregnancy and I remember after I gave birth I woke up every night for like a week completely DRENCHED while my body got rid of it all. It was disgusting. There is a little TMI for your afternoon

My ankles usually swell from work, but my feet and hands have started swelling more, too. When we flew to california a few weeks ago, my ankles were horrible, my toes even hurt they swelled so much. I was starting to get worried (my sister had pre-e with her first and gained 100lbs in water weight). Luckily my appointment was two days after we got back. Everything is fine, of course, but holy swelling batman! After a few days of normal activity and being able to lay in bed a few extra hours, it's down to a normal amount, but it still stinks
