    Im hoping its ok as i have also just noticed how fat my feet are!!! Ive been telling my midwife at checks that i have slight swelling on my ankles buts thats it. The thing is, i live in my ugg boots and decided to wear proper shoes the other day . . . . . . . omg i couldnt put them on due to my feet being sooooooooooo fat. Im assuming if the swelling was a problem it would show up in blood pressure but as it was recorded ok at my last visit im not going to worry too much unless i swell up stupidly from now on.

    I know this doesnt directly answer your question but i hope it has helped?

    Yes section is booked at 39+1. Had an emergency section with my first. Thought i would be more relaxed second time around but my word i am doubly more nervous this time. Its all the aches and pains and braxton hicks im getting that i never even felt with my first.

    I've had this too and I thought the same - my feet looked broken!

    I presume it's normal and all is well. Had MW appointment earlier in the week and BP/ wee test was normal so not to worried unless I swell up anywhere else x

    have you been on you feet alot? that may be the cause. my ankles keep swelling, my midwife says its probably due to extra weight i'm carrying. my blood pressure has always been normal so i'm not worried. like someone else said as long as there is no swelling anywhere else you shud be fine but if you are ever worried ask your midwife or phone lanor and delivery they are really the best people to be asking!

    Swollen ankles/feet is more common in the summer time due to water retention and heat etc. I always get asked at my appointments if I have had any swelling.

    I guess if you only have swelling and no other symptoms such as high BP or protein in your urine (which all indicate signs of pre-eclampsia) then it could simply be water retention.

    If it is water retention, try and drink more as this should flush out the toxins in your system and try sitting with your legs raised and let gravity work.

    I would mention it at your next appointment though just so they can keep an eye on it

    My feet have got really swollen over the past few weeks too. Im really used to having narrow, skinny feet and now all of a sudden they are really pudgy and fat lol. Its strange and I don't like it but its just a normal part of pregnancy I guess unless its excessive and then maybe it could be something to worry about but I would say to your midwife/doctor next time you see them just incase :)
