Help never experienced........

I'm six weeks pregnant and I woke up this morning and noticed my left foot was swollen, I have noooo ankle! My right foot is a little swollen but no where near as swollen as my left foot. Its very tinglely. My ring on my left hand was hurting a little and when I took it off I had a big indentation. Is this normal?? This is my second pregnancy and I had none of this with my first at all. I didn't swell until 3 days after I had my daughter and they said when you have an epiduorl it happens but will go away. So what is going on it's not bad is it?? My face looks a little chubby too not much but I kinda thought that may be natural?

  • i would call your dr, you are very early and I don't see how you would swell that bad for no reason!!!

  • I also think you should call the doctor. It probably has nothing to do with being pregnant, but you want to get checked as soon as you can.

  • Call the Doc. But in the mean time drink lots of water and prop your feet up above your heart. You can also try laying down on your left side. I swell really bad when i'm pregnant and the dr said proping your feet and laying on your left side help your kidneys drain the extra fluid. Good luck!

  • I'd also say prop it up and don't move much, and call your doctor. A friend of our family woke up one day with one of her legs hugely swollen and it ended up she had a blood clot and had to be on bed rest and hospitalized for a while. More than like it's nothing that bad, but i'd let the professionals know.
