I am almost 6 weeks and have been having swelling of my ankles for the past 3 days. Is this normal? Our first appointment is not til next week. Should I be worried? How can I help the swelling go down?

Cut back in the salt, drink lots of water and keep your feet up. This early in I would probably call the dr.

This isn't normal for 6 weeks. I would call the doctor.

Drink more water and elevate your feet. See if they will let you see a nurse for a blood pressure check.

Watch your salt in take and try to stay off your feet so much..., how is your blood pressure??, the weather also can be a factor  if it continues   seek medical advice  good luck
