When did you start swelling?

During your pregnancies, when did you start swelling?

I'm having a little bit of swelling at the end of the day at 28 weeks. It seems early to me, was just wondering what your experiences were :)

  • My swelling started midways through my third trimester. I had terrible swelling also. My ankles and feet were huge and so was my nose!! Just make sure you're drinking plenty of water and getting as much rest as possible. My OB also told me that if I couldn't keep my feet elevated, to make sure I was putting them both flat on the floor and not letting them "dangle". Hope this helps you some. If you're real concerned, I would ask your doctor just to check. Congratulations and Best Wishes!!

  • Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and put your feet up. To answer you question, I don't remember when I started to swell.

  • Not until after I gave birth, the IV got me super swollen looking.

  • with my first pregnancy i didn't swell much at all. w/ my 2nd, i got swelling pretty bad starting right around 28 weeks. my feet were really swollen for about 2 weeks and then they were just slightly swollen after that.
