Last night, my calves were TWICE their normal size, I swear. This can't be normal. My ankles weren't even really swollen, just my legs. They were seriously *huge*. My DH was even alarmed at the change. They were back to normal size when I woke up this morning.

Another thing - today I am having a really achy feeling in the right side of my back, at about mid-back level. Don't know if I've pulled a muscle or if it's kidney pain or what.

Thank goodness I have an OB appointment this evening!

Oh my gosh I am right there with you on the swollen calves/ankles/feet... It seems the later in the week it gets, the worse the swelling becomes... it's our body's way of saying "PUT YOUR FEET UP AND REST" yet we're still going, going, going!

I am soooo sleepy too--I need a nap... yet I'll be here till 8pm tonight! *SIGH* *YAAAWN*
