Woke up with...


Very swollen hands!! Nothing else is swollen. It's weird. One routine visit revealed protein in urine but BP was low. What should I do?

I'd ring maternity assessment and ask them. It can be normal but depends how swollen they are i guess! If protein was found before then I'd imagine they will want to see you x

Have you had a lot of water? How is the temperature? On days when it was hit, if I didn’t drink enough water I would swell and could get my ring off if shoes on. Freaked me out. BUT I agree just ring the doctor just to be safe

I agree that you should ring the maternity assessment unit or your doctor.

I've had swollen hands a couple of days, mainly when it's really hot. However, never had protein in the urine.

I hope they're able to put your mind at rest.

Thanks everyone. I did go to women's triage and got labs and monitored. All was normal. However I was having contractions every 3-5 minutes and was at 70%. Effaced and 3-4cm. They sent me home and told me come back when contractions are stronger. Have slight spotting from exam and cramps this morning. Could labor be far?

I would think you are pretty close to active labor. How are you feeling today?

Thanks ladies.. I'm still pregnant!! Still 3-4cm. No changes. I'm having slight nausea. Dr said she won't let me go pass 39 weeks.. So I guess within 14 days I'll have a baby!
