  • Hands and legs are supposed to swell during pregnancy. Face is not. It could be you are going into pre-eclampsia which can being well controlled but can lead to eclampsia which, for niece led to seizure right after birth. So, call your obgyn or whatever doctor you are using. If they are already closed, call the on call number or labor and delivery at the nearest hospital.

  • do you have problems with your teeth? Maybe caused by infection in mouth? or could be sinus...What part of face is swollen?

  • could be nothing-swelling during pregnancy is just one of the many hazards- but it could be blood pressure. Run by your local Fire Department and let the check it just to be sure.

  • im not smart on this stuff but maybe your allergic to something, think about whats new around yout started, but sinus sounds like a possability too, or even an ear infection unfortunatly all that stuff triggers eachother cause theyre connected eyes, ears nose, teeth throat. I def dont think its just a simple pregnancy symptom though you shopuld see the doc. Good Luck sorry your in pain : (

  • Headache and swollen face can be something more than an infection or allergies. Call your OB. It COULD be pre-eclampsia. Are you close or over 20 weeks, have you had more than 2 pounds a week weight gain, is your vision blurred. These are some of the signs for it. I would get checked by your Dr.

  • pre-eclampsia is high blood pressure. Don't freak out go get it checked for free first then if it's high call you ob.
