So I am only 14 weeks but my feet got puffy twice this week. They didn't swell to the point of hurting, but I could tell they were puffy. Did this happen to anyone this early? Also I think it could be salt. The days it happened I had a lot of salt in things like soy sauce and stuff. Anyone?

That always did it for me. I was told to eliminate salty (high sodium) food and drinks from my diet. It helped.

Without the salt/sodium I had excessive swelling to the point that the tops of my feet felt like they jiggled when I walked. I could have only imagined what would have happened had I helped myself to some chips or soda.

I don't remember swelling that early on, but I suppose if it was warm weather and you had a lot of salt that could do it. Just to be safe I would mention it to your OB....

but hey I heard Cankles are sexy!!!

LOLOL About sexy cankles!

I would mention this to your Dr, I think you're too early for Pre-E, but you may need to watch your diet closely.
