I just reached my 37th week today and for the last5 days I've been having issues with one of my lower legs and foot swelling. I feel pretty much okay besides the slight headache. I figured when it started swelling like this, to sit down off of it but that doesn't change anything it still stays swollen from when I get up in the morning until I go to bed. It is so swollen that if I place something on it (flip flops on foot, sit with feet dangling off the bed) for no more than 5 minutes, I have very deep imprints. My foot burns and turns red when I put on my flip flops and its irritating to walk. I typed this in the search and I got back a condition called preeclampsia. Is this something common, has anyone had this issue and what did your doctor do about it. I am scheduled for my appointment in a few hours so I plan to bring it up to my doctor, but I like to have a heads up in case something is wrong. Before I had regular swelling in both feet but now my right foot doesn't swell at all just the left side and sometimes my left hand as well.
