  • it's just because that is normal. i went through the same thing. my doctor reassured me that all of these uncomfortable "minor" pains are perfectly normal. i guess they see so much really go wrong, that it just does not phase them, like it does us!

  • retaining water is normal at 35 weeks, just try to keep your feet elevated as much as you can and drink as much water as possible.. As for the cramping, you should tell them again and make it a point that you want everything explained to you. Cramping can also be normal during pregnancy, maybe he just thought it wasn't a big deal. Thats no reason to ignore you though, some drs just don't have very good bedside manners.
