I swear to god my feet look like sasquachs. (spelling? lol). I usually have really big arches in my feet, but they're so swollen I'm flat footed. It hurts to walk. Hell it hurts just to stand up. My toes look like damn sausages.
Any of you girls know any ways to help reduce swelling?
A bit of swelling is common in pregnancy but if it excessive swelling you may want to talk to your midwife about it, it may be a condtition called Pre-eclampsia. As for any advice i dont really have any didnt want to read and run.
Drink loads of water and watch your sodium intake, this is crucial. As someone who suffered from preeclampsia, you should speak to your doctor about your swelling. Preeclampsia can be life threatening so always good to monitor it.
I've do what the other girls have said, keep hydrated, and get checked out for pre-eclampsia just in case, as it can be life threatening to you and LO if not picked up/it gets into the later stages. Hope it's nothing though! Let us know! xx
