swelling

I'm full of questions today :)

my feet havent swelled this entire pregnancy. Now in the last 3 days my feet have doubled in size I swear. I just noticed today that they are very red and splotchy. have any of you experienced the redness? they hurt as well to bend them. I didn't mention it to my doc yesterday b/c I thought it was nothing...now I'm kind of concerned a little. My feet swelled with my first pregnancy but it was the whol entire last two months and nothing would take the swelling down. any advice?

  • Try propping them up above your heart level (all day if possible atleast for 3 days) I went through this and this what helped me not to mention I freaked out when I saw my swollen feet they reminded me of Fred Flintstone feet...lol
