OMG what do I do???

I just got up to go potty and I notice my left foot felt funny. When I sat down, I saw that it was TWICE the size of my other foot!!! My toes look like little veinna weiners!!! What do I do? Will it go away?

  • hehe, that happened to me. my sciatic nerve has been bothering me my entire pregnancy - 35 wks - on my left side. i sit funny on my left leg all the time too - i tuck it under the other. just prop your feet up, but if the swelling continues, i would get your drs opinion - have you been tested for gestational diabetes yet? swelling is a sign. Good luck!

  • well, for the test - DO NOT DRINK OR EAT BEFORE.....my stupid dr told me it was ok to eat, so i drank 8 oz of oj.....well my test came back 'higher' than what they wanted to see - which then i had to FAST for 12 hours, go in at 7 am and do a FOUR HOUR TEST.....which came back negative....save yourself your sanity....i even argued that my sugar was high because of juice, but heck, what do i know.....(which they messed up my first 4 hour test one because they skipped over me, so i had to fast again that night.... so i didn't eat in two days for 32 hours) GOOD LUCK :)

  • This can happen for many reasons. I had my hand swell up when I was in highschool. Turned out it was from a spider bite and eventually the swelling went down. But definately check with your Dr. on this, can't hurt.
