  • The boob thing and swollen ankles are normal (only if they arent to swollen). I never had a problem with swelling in my first pregnancy but after my daughter was born my left foot and ankle got so swollen I thought my foot would pop. With this pregnancy I have some swelling in my feet and ankle but its not to bad. It started around 33 weeks. I'm now 38 and not much has changed

  • PP has got it right but I will add make sure to take breaks and prop your feet up(get plenty of foot rubs too :) and drink lots of fluids. G/L & Congrats :)

  • Thanks ladies. We go back to the Dr on Monday. I will be four and a half months and my ankles have been swelling. I am hoping it is due to the hot weather...

  • Baby is nearly 12 weeks old, and the veiny boobs are STILL here, but the swollen ankles have luckily gone away...
