so I've been complaining on facebook about my one leg sweeling all weekend. a friend told me to call the dr the first day. of course, I didn't. didn't think it was a big deal. its been worse and its seriously only my left leg swelling to at least twice the normal size.

I called my ob today (this is day 3 or 4 of this?) and she told me to get to the nearest er with a maternity ward and I went to HUP because its connected to CHOP and to me that's closest and I kind of feel safer here in case something happens with baby.. but anyways. I was sent up to L&D with the triage nurse telling me theres a chance I might be sent back to the er (i hope not theres like 80 people in there).. my ob wants a blood clot ruled out, and I kind of wish I went to my hospital even though its further away its smaller and I would have been in a bed already and have been seen.

its definitely not as swollen as it has been right now. but, I also woke up about 3 1/2 hrs ago and I've been off my feet most of the time snce then. the only time the swelling goes down even with elevating it all day is when im in bed asleep. then it comes back with a vengence. blah..
