Stretch marks on Swollen Feet?

My feet/ankles/calves are really swollen. The skin feels itchy and dry like my belly, where I've been developing stretch marks. So I'm wondering, am I going to get stretch marks on my legs and feet too?? Does that happen?

  • I guess skin anywhere can get stretchmarks. Use vitamin E oil ..good excuse to have DH rub your feet ;o) What was your bp at the OB 2 days ago ? Good?? Bad swelling can be a sign of toximea (sp?) And do keep those piggies raised high..off your feet...Dr's orders ;o)

  • Has your blood pressure been checked recently to be sure it isn't high?
    In the meantime, prop your feet up whenever you can, and call your OB to let him/her know and to ask for advice.
    As for the stretchmarks, I'm sorry sweetie, hopefully, they are small and will fade over time.
    Best wishes to you!
