38 weeks pregnant and one foot more swollen than the other?

Any one else experienced this or know someone who has? My husband is concerned but I don't think its anything. It is my left foot and even when I lay down at night the swelling goes down but not completely like the other foot.

  • I am 36 weeks & have had the same exact thing for a few weeks myself. My left ankle is slightly more swollen then my right ankle. They are not very very swollen, just not like they are normally. I asked my OBGYN & she said not to worry about it. I really limit my salt intake & try not to eat anything salty at all & drink lots of water. They don't hurt though.
