  • when I was near the end I was so full of water I felt like my skin was going to burst. After I had my baby I lost another 1-15lbs in water weight alone. All I did for the first three days after giving birth was pee

  • yes I would just watch it, it could be a sign of toxemia. Is your face swollen? If your face is swollen also I would definatly call the doc. With my first my legs feet, hand,and face swelled up really bad and it turned out I had toxemia.
