Post subject: swelling of legs/feet
I know this can be a normal pregnancy thing but is there a stage/time that its not normal ?

Mine have been swollen for a few days to look at i guess they dont look to bad but i know theyve swollen as my socks are tighter espcially bad sock lines on my ankles and my skin feels tighter

yes you look out for other syntoms too, so off top off my head, I think you need to see if you face is swollen as well.

Look up symptoms of pre-eclampsia, that tells you.

Good luck. xxx

Swelling alone is fine (unless its sudden) but if you have a headache or blurred vision at all ring your midwife even if just to get your bp/urine checked.. Also a pain in your ribs is another sign to look for (I think thats what my mw said) I've had bad headaches all through an every time I see her she reminds me the signs. Xx

I was tested for pre eclampsia on Wednesday as i had slightly high bp & little protein in urine so they sent a mw round Wed to double check and all came back ok so far. Thanks ladies I'll keep a check on it
