  • Congrats!!!! You may won't to call your doc and ask. This happen to my friend also and she had to be put back in the hospital. For some reason she would have blood pressure problems after giving birth.

  • Mine were as big as my thighs for 2 weeks. Call the doctor just so they know and get off you feet as much as you can with them propped up.
