  • I had alot of water retention with my son, and it got worse right after I had him (long story), I would assume it is normal my doctor told me it happens. It could be normal or it could be edema. I think They say if you press on your foot hold for three seconds and let go, count to five it there is still an indentation where you pressed call the doctor.
