Puffy hands and feet already??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So the last few days especially when I wake up in the morning my hands and feet feel a little bit puffy - kind of like they often feel after a hike or something. With both of my other pregnancies I ended up not being able to wear my wedding ring for the last few months because of puffy hands, but I figured it was weight gain. I'm only 10 weeks along now and have gained maybe 5-10 pounds (depends on what time of day I weigh myself!) so it's weird to me that I already feel like I need to take my ring off. I'm sitting here drinking a watered down green tea with lemon hoping that will help. I have a Dr. appt. Monday so will ask about it then. Is anyone else experiencing this??

What did your doctor say? Any blood pressure concerns?

Nettle leaf tea can help with swelling. It nourishes your kidneys and is good for circulation. Also, cucumbers and eggs (having several of each daily) supposedly help with swelling too. Make sure you don't eliminate salt from your diet. Often the swelling can mean that you need to drink more water.

I always take dandelion in pregnancy, helps a lot. Usually after around second tri.
