MrsEME:  Do the Check Your Symptoms section on the left. These are the exact questions that a nurse would ask if you called Healthlink ( our NurseLine).

<h2 class=”HwSectionTitle”>Swelling During Pregnancy (Severe)</h2>

During pregnancy, swelling that may be a sign of a more serious problem may include:

  • Weight gain of 0.9 kg (2 lb) or more during a 24-hour period.
  • New and increasing swelling, especially in your face, hands, or feet.
  • Swelling in your feet that does not improve even after you lie on your side for several hours.

I would be a bit worried about the swelling in your face.

MrsEME:  Just keep an eye out.  I am not sure about the orbital bone.  But I had to take a DL eye exam at 34-ish weeks pregnant and it was hot in there and I FAILED miserably. Like you only need 20/60 in one eye to pass and I couldn’t do it.  I could not pass that test that day.  They made me go see an eye doctor and I passed the vision test fine there (actually it was 20/30) where I was more relaxed and could take my time (and wasn’t hot ugh).  So the whole water retention and eye problems could be totally normal. 

I had mild swelling in my calves and my face certainly looked a bit fatter than normal.  So mild swelling is normal (the swelling showed up and never went away until after delivery).

It almost sounds like an allergic reaction to me. Did you eat anything unusual or start a new medication or beauty product?
