Swelling

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and have had slight swelling on my hands and feet, tonight I have noticed that the swelling has gone slightly up my arms and seem to have a very slight rash too.. what could this be? Any advice or tips would be great :)

  • Drink more water, stay off your feet, and watch the BP. Swelling can happen a few weeks before the BP spikes up during preeclampsia. I was very swollen for about 3 weeks before my BP spiked up; and I had an emergency Csection the next day.

  • I agree, I would at least call your doc and get checked out. Preclampsia (sp?) is nothing to mess around with

  • yes let your doctor know so they can make sure you don't have preeclampsia
