My feet have been feeling pretty strange lately and I came home from work, sat down, saw my feet and noticed that I don't have ankles anymore! I never had swelling with DD (until labor) so I guess I should consider myself lucky. She was born in January though and I think it has a lot to do with the weather. It got up to 80 today so it has to be the weather. I am finally sitting down with my feet up and drinking some water. DH is out of town helping his brother put in a new floor at the island (his family owns a small island on a lake in Ohio) so I have not been able to sit much.

Anything else I should do besides drinking water and propping up my feet?

I think you're doing what is generally recommended.. I guess also just keep an eye out for any other weird symptoms, because swelling can be a sign of PreE - BUT it's also very normal at our stage of pregnancy, so I'm sure it's just that!!!

i'm sorry hun - i had that with DS. you can also try massaging your legs and ankles - or have your DH do it - get some of that fluid moving around. Sometimes wearing tighter/supportive socks helps as well. I hope the swelling goes down!
