  • swelling in the feet and ankels and even the fingers are common during pregnany. Try putting your feet up as much as possible and limiting your salt intake. Just tell your doc about your concerns at the next visit.

  • Unfortunately that is just part of being pregnant. Make sure you put your feet up as much as you can.
