  • You need to lay down more and keep your feet elevated. Too much pressure on your ankles is not good for circulation and it can cause varicose veins (the icky ones that stick out!)

  • My feet and hands are swollen too, and I've never experience this with my other pregnancies. Its ok as long as it doesnt get to bad. Its water retention.

  • it could be too much salt in your diet, high blood pressure, many things...glad you called the OB just to be sure. Nothing that is going to harm you or baby in the amt of time it takes for you to go to the the doc.

  • This is my 3rd pregnancy..and I've never had a problem with swelling..until NOW! Its horrible! I was thinking maybe it had something to do with the time of year..its so hot. My other two were born in Feb and March. Is this your first time being this far preg in this heat too?
