Okay so in the past couple hours my feet have trippled in size..it looks like I have whales at the end of what used to be my ankles my hands are also swollen..Should I be concerned? It has been 6 years or so since I experienced pre-e so I have forgotten how things happen. Would you guys worry or is it probably just regular pregnancy stuff?
You can try soaking in a tub of epsom salts to reduce the swelling. While you're in there, drink lots of water or RRL tea. Soak for an hour or more. You will probably pee a lot, but that's good. I did this during my last pegnancy, and it helped a lot.
I would still contact your health care provider though. That rapid seems pretty dramatic.
|The good news is that my pedicurist told me that the third time your feet swell up like that, that's when you'll go into labor!|
