  • When I was preg. and my hands and ankles swelled they were also itchy......from my skin stretching so much. Lotion works wonders, I also rubbed vaseline on them.

  • I don't know. But I would have gone in and be seen to make sure what you are taking is safe for pregnancy. I say go in and see what is going on.

  • Well I don't know either, it's too early to be swollen already. I didn't start to swell until I was past my 30 weeks and that was with both pregnancies.
