Anyone experiencing swelling already? I've noticed my ankles are getting swollen. I had pretty awful swelling last time, which accounted for a lot of my weight gain.

What do you find helps? I know being on my feet alllll day doesn't do me any favors.

Not yet, but I did have swollen feet toward the end last time. I kept them elevated as much as I could, and tried to drink enough water.

The only swelling that I've noticed so far is my fingers. My ankles seem fine for now anyway.

Mine was terrible last time, and I could NOT seem to get it down. The only thing that helped for me was laying down. Even sitting up with them propped didn't keep them from swelling. Also, I wore tennis shoes a lot to keep them from expanding throughout the day. I also think it had a great deal to do with the time of year I was pregnant - she was born mid-August.

None here yet either. My wedding ring is actually looser lately than its been. My mom who gives me massages noticed a bit of a difference in my wrists and shins but that could just be extra blood volume

My finger have been swelling a bit more, today was the first day I didn't even attempt to put my rings on. It comes and goes though, some days I can still wear them. I did notice this morning when getting in the shower that my toes were looking much chunkier than normal. I haven't really experienced much swelling in my ankles. I do remember having incredibly swollen feet after having my first son. It grossed me out to walk and feel my feet swash!

I have swelling if I have a really long day on my feet or a lot of walking. The more water I drink though the better it is and just by putting my feet up it usually goes away. Nothing like with my first. With my first son my swelling was terrible but as you mentioned also connected to weight gain.

Not really yet. I had terrible swelling with my son but I worked on my feet all day. I'm home with the kids now so I just try to keep my feet up as much as possible. As possible as that is with 2 young kids at home : / I do try to make sure I drink lots of water too
