Yikes! Have you been drinking enough water? I know that causes me to swell sometimes... maybe that's why he's not too concerned? Regardless, he shouldn't have been a jerk about it!

Eat well, drink tons of water, and take it easy!!! I'll be thinking about you, lady!

I think if you still feel swollen and unwell tomorrow, I would just go and see the doctor anyway.

I'm sorry your doc was a jerk that sucks..maybe try a warm shower and relax and have a small snack to get that blood pressure back up where it needs to be. I would go see the doc tomorrow too just to be safe.
I hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry that your dr is being a jerk. not sure what his problem is. Definitely make sure you are drinking enough water. I always swell if I don't get enough water and I would set an appointment if the swelling doesn't get better.

Lots of water! One of my good friends is due in a few weeks and she said shes SUPER swelled and just done, lol. We still have a long ways to go! I'm not experiencing too much swelling yet, just some pain in my legs when I am sitting at school all day.
