Does anyone have a secret to help the swelling? I'm 37 weeks 3 days and my legs and ankles are so swollen.

U and I both. I'm 36 weeks 2 days. I soak mine in the coldest water I can handle with tea tree oil, chamomile, & baking soda. I also sleep with them elevated :)

Elevate your legs? Epsom salt foot soak?

I never could get my swelling under control, especially with my first pregnancy, almost all of my insane weight gain was water... my fingers swelled so fast, so much, my rings had to be cut off, my ankles were enormous!!!!

My husband's aunt had me stand perfectly straight, and she poked certain spots on my legs. I don't remember where exactly, up and down on the outside of my legs. Within an hour my swelling was gone. I love that woman.

I used to lay with bags of frozen peas on my ankles/feet..it really did help me.
