  • You could be just retaining water. I had my lo 6 months ago and still swell.

  • Well, it is also a sign of me sitting outside in 100 degree heat, sweating my ass off lol. But yeah, it can totally be a sign of pregnancy but from what I understand, the swelling doesn't happen until you're much further along.

  • to much sodium intake, lack of water, high blood pressure...could all cause swelling.

  • I don't think that happens until much later. Actually the last couple months or so.

  • if that were true I would have been pregnant most of my teen and adult life... it can be associated with pregnancy.. but it is also a symptom of fluid retention... I had fluid retention worse with my son than my daughter.. and as one poster put it tends to come as a later symptom...
