Post pregnancy swelling!!!!

I had my daughter on Friday and a couple weeks before that I started to swell in my legs and feet very bad. Now that I've had her I'm still swelling just as bad if not worse and now I have a rash all over both of my legs! Anyone else go through this? I'm still waiting for my doctor to call bit I'm so miserable I can't even enjoy my newborn :(

  • When I was pregnant with my daughter I didnt have any swelling until after she was born. It was only in my left foot and ankle. The only thing that worked was staying off my feet for like 2 weeks which is really hard to do with a new born. I didnt get rashes so I'm not sure what to do about that. Are you taking any medicines? Maybe your having a reaction to something.
