Now that the temps are hitting the 75 degree mark and beyond, I've noticed my hands and feet swelling up (sausage fingers, much?) which makes typing and computer work kind of annoying. Anyone else having this issue? I work in a non-airconditioned small office but did request to have an industrial fan installed which helps keep the air flowing at least. I'm wondering what the rest of summer will be like if I'm already puffing up in May! Yikes.

Slight swelling of the hands during pregnancy can be normal (i.e. trouble wearing rings), but if it's pronounced enough that it's interfering with typing you should probably check in with your health care provider and have your blood pressure checked, especially if the onset was sudden.

Drinking lots of water and avoiding salt should help.
