  • Call your OB's nurse and run it by her. SOmetimes, the babe will push on your spine and a nerve can get pinched, causing burning. But, if you are noticing swelling, I would run it by the nurse so they could be on top of any issues that might be blood pressure related.

  • You should call your OB/Gyn & go in to be seen just to be sure that it isn't anything serious (like high blood pressure) but it sounds like water retention to me. So common in the last weeks & esp in the summer.

    Soak your feet in cold water & then rest & put your feet up. But, call your doctor - better safe than sorry.
