Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas for reducing the likelihood of swollen feet/ankles? I try to get up and walk around when traveling and keep well hydrated. Any other good tips/tricks/ideas? I plan to avoid high heels from here on out (I'm at 18 weeks now), since I suspect that may be what caused the calf pain.
In short: I had a lovely experience this past week with a suddenly very swollen right foot and calf pain that sent me to the ER at midnight after calling the after hours emergency number at my normal doctor's office. Because of the combination of systems, they were very concerned about a blood clot. So...I wound up at the ER for at least 6 hours in a city far from home. Nothing found, but I had to go back in to the hospital near the house for further checking this morning. Would LOVE to avoid all that in future, especially as I'm moving cross-country in a few weeks.
