Not sure about the recliner, but I had the same thing.  Towards the end they just seemed perpetually swollen.

I haven't dealt with swelling yet, but I'm only 19 weeks. I DID have some swelling w my daughter at the end of that pregnancy and imagine it may be worse w twins. I wouldn't think the recliner, assuming your feet are elevated some, would contribute too much to that, but I don't know. I know that w my singleton I never had high blood pressure or any other problems sometimes associated w swelling, but I eventually had to go to the fire station and have my wedding rings cut off! I think it's fairly common 😕
I went to the chiro on thurs a.m. and found out my pelvis is indeed "all sorts of jacked up" lol! Was so lopsided that it has been pulling my right leg shorter than my left. Will be doing adjustments and some therapy for that throughout. Went to midwife same day and all looked good, measuring 26 weeks at 18!!! Oh goodness! Had an ultrasound today and babies looked great, measuring nearly a week ahead now, both of them! They were situated side by side and both head down (they are di-di) and their heartbeats were great, exactly the same:) Found out they're two boys!
How's everyone else doing/feeling?
