I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

I was swollen for a good 10 days. All the fluids and pitocin. It goes away! You just need to rest more!

With DD1 I was swollen for a good week to 10 days after she was born. I was afraid it would never go away lol. This time I didn't really swell during pregnancy but was swollen for a couple days after she was born.

I didn't swell at all during my pregnancy, but the morning after I woke up from my c section, I felt like a stretched out water balloon! I swelled a lot. It took a week or so to go back down. They told me to walk a lot drink lots of water and elevate my feet.

Actually my doctor said its a lack of protein. I made sure I ate more since being home and the swelling went down completely.

I had massive headaches, too... but everything else was OK, so just a side effect of pregnancy.

Mine lasted 2 weeks. I weighed 10lbs more than I did before I went in to be induced. I never swelled during pregnancy. I was swollen from the feet up to my incision. I was sore as well on my foot.
