I have had a few days where my hands/fingers are a bit swollen along with my ankles.
Last night though was yucky bad! My rings were tight, but my feet, ankles, and legs were nasty swollen. I'm afraid it stretched out my shoes, I'm hoping not. I could push a hand print in my ankles last night.
None so far, except for the typical hot summer day swelling that I get even when I'm not pregnant (you know, my fingers get a little puffier and my ring feels tight). Crossing my fingers that I don't have any swelling that is pregnancy related!
Sorry to hear that you're having a tough time with it Jenn.
I've been swelling for quite some time now, I notice it when I get home at night from working 12 hour shifts. My calves are like 1/2 to 1 inch bigger than my ankles, cuz my boots are high and tied, my hands and face are not swelling yet, hopefully that doesn't happen this go around!! Sorry your having such a rough time!
Really swollen over here. I've gained around 8 lbs of swelling in the past 2 weeks. My feet are pretty bad, and my hands are starting to go numb. Not passing protein, though. BP was 120/80. Little high for me but not concerning. No more vision changes either. It really hurts to walk lately. I think the pressure is doing it.
I'm not terribly swollen but it is noticeable enough in my hands and feet, especially if its hot out or I'm on my feet for a long time. I'm jealous that some of you are still wearing your rings, mine came off months ago, like probably in May But I think mine are always the tight side.
Luckily DH bought me a 'promise' ring when I was pregnant with DS (before we were married) and we never bothered to get it resized (to my actual smaller size) so it's usually too big but fits perfectly when I'm pregnant...so at least I get to wear something on my ring finger.
I'm wearing my wedding rings but they typically fit a little loose. They're snug now, but not jaws of life snug. Since our bedroom on vacation is on the 4th floor and we only have stairs, I've been doing a lot of walking up and down to the bathroom and such, so my feet are swollen this week. They look a little silly, but not so swollen that I need to go to the doctor. My SIL looked at them and was amused by their fatness, not concerned. I bought a pair of recycled yoga mat flip flops from Sanuk the other day that are SOOOO comfortable - they're definitely going to be my late pregnancy fat feet shoes. Since it's hot here til Oct/November I'll get plenty of wear out of them.
I've had a few days with slight swelling on my ankles, but not bad at all. This time of year I live in sandals so nothing noticeable with my footwear. Some days my wedding ring is snug, but its also summer and hot.
I've had a few days of where'd my ankle bone go. Usually i have a tad in my fingers, maybe a touch in my ankles. The midwife wasn't worried though - she said as hot as its been here the past few, most patients are seeing some degree of swelling. I just try to drink as much water as possible. BP is great, so no concerns so far.
