Pre eclampsia can pop up right at the end of pregnancy, but it's probably not that. Your BP could have changed, or you might just have lots of fluid in your joints. Ask your midwife when you see her, and make sure she doesn't fob you off. Get checked properly =) BUT don't worry yourself, I've swollen everywhere. Had my fingers in the freezer the other day to get my engagement rings off. Can't unhook my bracelet from my wrist either, and it's usually too loose!!
Good luck honey x
There are times when my feet, ankles, legs and hands feel really swollen, particularly if ive been standing up alot or walking around all day, but its gradual, and it comes and goes. If the swelling has appeared suddenly, I'd recommend giving your midwife or assessment unit a call, and asking their advice. It's always better to be safe rather than sorry, particularly as your face is swelling up to. Good luck, and try not to worry x
Go to the clinic. get checked but in the meantime reduce your intake of salt, carbonated drinks,any beverage containing any amount of caffeine[this you should stop completely if you are taking it] such as coke ,cola, coffee .they all cause water retention and can give you oedema i.e the swells that you are having. make sure that the little salt you use is iodised salt. good luck
