in the last few weeks yes. Looked kind of like tree trunks. It was much, much worse for the first week after delivery as well.

Only in 1 out of 4 pregnancies. I may have had gestational diabetes. I think I developed it after passing my test. I did have GD in vmy last pregnancy and it was controlled with insulin and I had no swelling.

go take a bath and prop your legs/feet up on the side of the tub. And make sure you're drinking water!!!

Please let your doctor know this...it can be an early sign of pre-eclampsia.

Twice.  Once after walking through two malls in one day, shopping, in Orlando and the other time was after schlepping through two airports.  My feet looked like sausages.  While I'm sure walking so much at six months along was partly at fault, I'm convinced that eating at chain restaurants, every day for a week, while on vacation, with all that salt and fat, was also to blame.
