So I have my first dr appoinment on Tuesday and I noticed today that my feet are already sweeling. Is that normal to have sweeling so early? I didn't get it until I was over 7 months with my dd

i don't know for sure, but i don't think that's normal.  It could be completely unrelated but it could also be a sympton of a larger problem. you may want to call your dr just in case

Excess swelling is a sign of high blood pressure. Go to the doctor and check it or the pharmacy and use theirs. This is really important.

I totally agree here because my BP was fine before this pregnancy even with my one prior and by 10 wks I was being hospitalized for chronic hypertension. I now take 2 different meds a day and the max dosage and have been on bed rest since 22 wks and I am 28w now. I will be having a c-section around 37w because of all the issues and meds. Please be cautious! Always better safe than sorry. I would go to the local pharmacy or call your ob

It is normal. In the first trimester it is due to hormones. Some women's feet swell and some don't. Mine are swollen as well.
