  • I agree with mamawilbur...
    Try propping your feet up passed the level of your heart see if that helps reduce or take away the swelling.

    I remembering having this I swear my feet looked like FRED FLINSTONE...lol GL

  • Have you discussed this with your Doctor? He needs to know that you are SWOLLEN. Swelling can be treated. Keep your feet elevated and stay away from salt.

  • it can be just a pregnancy symptom for some woman but it can be a sign of preclampsia for others, I had it, make sure you get your blood pressure taken and get an appt at your Dr just to get it all checked, I delievered my daughter at 35 weeks because of it and if I didnt have such good Drs taking care of me, she wouldnt be here........
