Swelling
I am just about 36 weeks and starting with swelling. Well it more like came out of no where the last couple of days but what really concerns me is that my feet are almost burning. Has anyone else experienced this?!

I had a lot of swelling at the end of both of my pregnancies and I had bit feet.  Try to put them up which helps with swelling.  While it is normal for most women, it also can be a sign of blood pressure issues.  Your doctor will check this .  My doctor monitored swelling.  She'd put her finger into it and it pitted (imprint of her finger stayed for a bit), that was more concerning.  With my first pregnancy, I DID have elevated blood pressure and I was given a week of resting (no work) at the end of my pregnancy with swelling being one of the things sited.  So, you probably are seeing your doctor weekly now at 36 weeks?  Show them, get your BP checked and try to keep your feet up when at home (I used an ottoman with a pillow under my feet).  good luck

Watch the swelling even know its normal. If you push on the swelling and leaves an inprint for longer than normal ring your midwife and let her know as it could be pre-eclampsia which can be really bad for both you and baby.

be carefull for pre eclampsia, what took care if the swelling for me was soaking my feet in the soda tonic water. Sounds weird but helps.
