  • I always called the dr office when I was pregnant. Dont feel bad to call and ask even if they are closed they have a nurse or dr that can answer questions. I now call my sons dr's office every single time he has a new issue. lol Hope your okay. I didnt have that when I was pregnant

  • Depends how swollen they are. A little bit is normal but my doctor told me to call right away if my hands swelled up a lot or if my feet swelled really fast or if there was swelling in my face. I'd say call your doctor and ask them. They might be able to give you a few ideas of how to manage it better and make not so uncomfortable.

  • Depends on how swollen you are...could be a sign that your blood pressure is high and you are developing preeclampsia, I would call your doc and see if they want you to come in. If you are this could be dangerous to your baby and you

  • I would call and check with your dr. It can be normal but it can also be a sign of high B/P. They might just want you to go in and get your blood pressure checked.
