I posted a picture of one of my poor, swollen ankles/feet in the Belly Pics thread, but let's chat about this. I'm now 31w2d, and pretty much just started swelling as of this past weekend. I'm getting responses that range from "Wow, you're lucky, I was swollen the whole time!" to "ZOMG, be careful, I bet your BP is out of control". (It's not, by the way)
Is there anything special I should be doing to combat this? I have a sedentary job, so I've been making special efforts to get up and move around throughout the day, doing squats and lunges to boost circulation in my legs and try to encourage some venous return of this fluid. I've been drinking 2L+ of water per day and pretty much no other beverages, besides milk and an iced coffee once or twice a week. I'm going to try to get to the gym a few times a week to go swimming, which felt FANTASTIC with my round ligament pain already. Plus, I've been going on long walks a few times a week.
Any other ideas?
