How much swelling is normal?

 I never really have any swelling when pregnant, other than my ankles when I'm about to pop and still working, but my friend is about 5mos and she seems to have swollen fingers, hands, feet, and toes all the time. When do you know this is a real problem, and not just that she needs to cut back on salt or something? She doesn't think anything is wrong, but her fingers don't look right to me as swollen as they are.

I always have swelling. If she has a problem, I'm sure her doctor will tell her.

I would talk to her (which it sounds like you did).  Otherwise, I would ask her to please mention it at her next appt b/c I'm worried about it.  KWIM?

But that's just me, and everyone sees how nosy and all I am. lol

I've been having swelling also but don't know how much is to much. I will be bringing it up to my doctor tomorrow. She should ask her doctor a about it.

I agree with the others, I would have her mention it to her doctor.

I'm 32.5 weeks and I haven't really noticed any real swelling... but I would bring it up as it could be a sign of pre eclampsia and other things that can negatively effect the baby..

I would just say "hey just to make me feel better, could you ask your doctor for me?"

The thing is, if she's doing too much, walking a lot, eating a lot of salty things(even things you wouldn't think of as being salty but are)...

Then of course it's contributing and cutting back, taking breaks,etc can help but it's up to her to reckognize that in her self as some people can't be reached til THEY think it's a problem.
