I've been swelling for the past two weeks. I can't hardly stand up or do anything without swelling up. I only have 5 weeks left and want to know if there is anything i can about it, other than put my feet up.

  • I'm going thru the exact same thing and my doctor said to stay away from sodium, drink LOTS of water and elevate when possible as well as walking when you can. I have 5 wks left as well and I am SO ready for this baby to be out I can't even tell you!

  • I've completely taken out sodium and starchy foods out of my diet and drink lots of water and I'm STILL swelling around my feet and ankles. My doc says it's normal, and nothing to be worried about. Just one of those pregnancy pains!

    GL!! You're almost there!
