  • i have talked to the doctor about this..and everything has been normal...kinda strange for it to just pop up 2-3 days after my doctors visit! so i when i was preggo with cheyenne i was soo swollen every where! i was 5lbs shy of 200lbs and i am 35 weeks along an only weight 168lbs with him...sooo i have been doing extremely well!

  • Is your face swolen, too? Is your vision blurry? It sounds like preeclampsia to me. I had it the last month or two of mypregnancy and ended up having my daughter at around 37 weeks because I gained 7lb in a week and my OB was very worried. If you think something is wrong, get checked out. Nobody NOBODY knows your body like you do, not even your doctor. Good luck honey, hope everything's ok!
