Anyone else just randomly wake up swollen sometimes?

Typically my swelling (ankles only most of the time) only occurs in the heat if I've been on my feet for awhile.

this morning I woke up and my ankles are swollen... after laying in bed for hours. So weird! Maybe I drank too much water yesterday? lol

That's weird, but I think it means you need to drink MORE water!

I wake up with hand swelling all the time, even if I just take a quick nap I get up and my hands feel super tight. I'm dealing with carpal tunnel horribly though (knock on wood it goes away as soon as I have this kid because not being able to grip my darn toothbrush is somewhat... ok, completely... ridiculous).

There were a few days I've woken up with super swollen feet but usually it's just when it's hot in our room the night before... and it goes away relatively quickly for me for a number of hours, then randomly will fluff back up toward the end of the day.

Fun stuff!
Cautiously expecting our 1st!

I agree drink more water. I was swelling in my hands and feet despite drinking what I thought was enough... But when I started drinking water all day abou double what I had been. The swelling is gone and I feel better.

Drinking more does help.. If not enough, the body will think you are dehydrated and retain it. I usually wake up less swollen in my feet and ankles but still swollen but more swollen in my face and hands.. then through the day, the feet/ankles tend to get worse no matter what I do. No fun... also, heat does make it ten times worse!
