Pregnancy Pregnancy

How early did you start to swell

I just found out I was pregnant, like yesterday. This will be my second. Last time my feet swole a little, but for the past two nights my feet have been huge. Especially my left one. Last night I even started feeling it up in my leg. Is this normal?

I never had pregnancy swelling, but it seems a bit early for that.  I'd ask your doc.

my feet were swollen around 5 weeks for a few days.. i drank boat loads of water and propped them often and they went down good.  I get a tiny bit here and there on my ankles now at 12 weeks, but nothing like i had at 5 weeks. that was just weird!

Maybe it's because I've ate salty foods. I'm hoping if I cut back it will solve it. It's bad enough that I don't even have to look at them, I can just feel the pain from how swollen they've become.

Only with number 2 and at 14 weeks. I'd call the doc about your symptoms

Are they red and warm to the touch? If so you need to see a doctor!

Not red or warm, just big.

I'm 30 weeks and haven't really swelled aside from an unnoticeable amount in my fingers (I only know b/c my wedding ring doesn't fit well right now). 

My friend swelled from basically when she found out she was pregnant too.  I'd definitely have it checked out to be safe.
