SWELLING IN ANKLES/FEET
I had swelling last night just outta the blue.  I have never seen my ankles/feet look like this other than when I was in labor with my first son.  i looked like I was smuggling a baseball where my ankle bone is SUPPOSED to be sticking out.  i felt like my face was swollen more than usual...i had a headache off and on but didnt think anything of it because it wasnt really bad....Is this just water retention??  Call the doctor?

31 weeks tomorrow

Def worth getting checked . They prob check your blood pressure and for protein if blood pressure up a bit they prob give you.tablets I had slightly high.n im now on tablets but had headache today so midwife coming out to check my pressure. They will induce if severe preeclampsia
