How far along are you? I did that at the VERY end of pregnancy with my son. It was almost painful!

How far along are you? I got swollen, like that with ds1. Put your feet up and relax for a moment.

Is it just your feet? Has your blood pressure been normal? My cousin got pre e at 36 Weeks but she was swollen in her feet and legs. She went for a check up and was spilling protein and her pressure was slightly high.

I know it's counterintuitive but drink even more water! Rest when you can! you're almost there...

My BP is 135/86. I have to track it myself at home. I had severe Pre-E with DS and he was taken emergency C-section at 28 wks, but I haven't shown any other signs. BP is kind of high for me, but still considered within normal limits.

My feet are swollen today too! I actually googled pre-e when I got home from work. thankfully i dont have any other signs so im pretty sure its just because it is SO hot today, my shoes were not comfortable, and I was on my feet working a lot today. I'm laying down now, about to go take a luke warm shower.
