I woke up to go potty and realized I have like sudden intense swelling in my right hand and arm and I haven't had any noticeable swelling before! it was completely out of the blue and wasnt there like 5 hours ago. i just went to the ER for something else like 2 days ago and dont want to go back so soon so i wanna know first if i should. im almost 37 weeks pregnant. i used some hydrocortisone ointment on my face for an itchy patch earlier tonight, thats teh only thing different. my doc had said it was ok. could the cortisone be doing this??Answer Question

You can always call an advice nurse to see if you should go in.
I would if it were me because unusual swelling (especially near the end of pregnancy) is a symptom of preeclampsia http://www.preeclampsia.org/about.Asp
