I didn’t start swelling at all until last week, 34 weeks. However, if I drink a lot, like 2 gallons of water per day, it keeps the swelling away.

I am 36 weeks and just started swelling last week, so I consider myself lucky! My feet are huge, my toes look like mini sausages, and I have no ankles…… so sexy! 

Darling Husband feels bad because I am always looking at my feet in amazement (how have they not exploded yet????), so usually I end up getting a foot massage from him!

@stargal34:  same exact thing for me. Ive noticed my feet swelling already.  I havent noticed it so much in my hands yet, but I’m sure that’s to come!

I started to swell at 5mo. At one point I gained 10lbs water weight from Thursday to Monday. They induced me b/c of complicatons like high b/p and i stopped producing amniotic fluid

My feet/ankles have been occasionally swelling (like 1-2 days per week) since week 26.  I crossing my fingers that it doesn’t get worse this summer (but that’s surely just wishful thinking!).  I’ve been elevating my feet, drinking lots of water, making Darling Husband give me massages and wearing compression tights to get the swelling to go away.

Oh my gosh I’m in trouble compared to you all! I started noticing my fingers and feet swelling last week at 11 weeks!  YIKES!  but I always see swelling in the Summer months so maybe that is the problem!

We’ve had a couple hot and humid days and my hands/face puffed out pretty good at almost 28 weeks. It was so uncomfortable! Not looking forward to the feet/ankles at all!

I’m swollen everywhere, my rings barely fit anymore, my legs are like tree trunks. Sexy. Oh and I have jowls now, so that’s cool.
