I am slightly ALARMED!!

I am 26 weeks pregnant and I am aware that some swelling is normal but my ankles are twice their normal size!! I have been standing for work for maybe 2 1/2 hours and it took me an hour to get here. Other than that I have been sitting/laying down all day. I am super scared that I will have preeclampsia again or have to give birth early. Please tell me this isn't a sign.

  • If you had preeclampsia before you need to call your Dr. Better safe than sorry. Good luck.
