Wading slowly and nervously into this homeschooling thing.
The midwife said not to worry about it today, since my home BPs are normal, I have another appt Thursday and it just started last night. What I'm wondering, though, and didn't ask her, is if that might be more of an issue with a structural thing. If I were having some real problems, wouldn't I have edema in BOTH legs? Instead, my left leg is completely normal and my right leg has some pitting half way up the shin. I know that can be a symptom of DVT, but it's not that. My leg is fine - not red, swollen, hot, painful, etc.
I had pitting edema in the ankle on that leg a couple weeks ago and got rid of it just by drinking lots and lots of water, but this just happened last night. I noticed the swelling was back on my ankle the day before yesterday, but the pitting just started last night. Anywho, I'm wondering what anyone else thinks of that idea (that it might be more of a structural issue/the way my uterus is sitting/something like that). I'm going to the chiro today, so maybe they can shed some light on that question.
