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?
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
I know the feeling I think they will think im a drama queen all time. Just called my midwife only seen her yesterday n my blood pressure was fine so felt stupid.asking to do.it again but lucky I did as it's risen quite alot in 24 hours so she coming back tomorrow
well all is ok. baby is fine and ill be fine. I just need to rest more and stay off my feet as much as I can. So we will go from there and see....but my bp was 126/52 for the first time they took it and idk what it was after that!
