it can be common to get swelling in hands and feet , check in a mirror to make sure you dont have any in your face , worth giving the mw a call she might want to check you bp

I've had hand swelling this week too. I told the doc at my appt today and she said it was fine so long as it's not in my face and feet too. My BP was good though, so it might be worthwhile to have yours checked.

I've just had this in the past week or so, just hands not feet or face. Mentioned it to mw today who said quite normal at this stage (am now 39+4) and that BP etc was okay so not to worry.

As others have said, might be worth getting your BP checked out to give you peace of mind.
