One of my feet is insanely swollen. The other one is almost normal size but the swollen one is really bad. It wasn't really sudden and I don't have any signs of preeclampsyia but I still feel worried. I'm 36 weeks. I've been trying to drown it out with water but it doesn't seem to be working. What should I do?Answer Question

if you have confirmed with your doc that it's NOT pre-e then try some compression stockings or ace wraps with the elevation. I had some pretty good swelling, it was my only symptom... I was induced b/c they suspected pre-e... please stay in communication with your doc/midwife!!
