could you please send them back to me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"><br><br>
I don't remember swelling at all with dd and with ds I only swelled for a few days but it went away when he repositioned himself. With this one, for the last couple of weeks I end up with cankles by mid to late afternoon. So obnoxious and oh so attractive too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> This, despite the incessant drinking of water which puts me in the bathroom constantly. It seems to only go away overnight after sleeping with my legs elevated a bit. I guess I should be thankful I'm not swelling anywhere else, though. Small blessings and all that.

Same here- mild swelling with first baby (only in the last week or so), no swelling with second baby, and this time- WOAH! Major cankles!<br><br>
Mine are always better in the morning too, but I've found if I go swimming in the afternoon/evening then it helps a lot. Elevating them never works too well because I get antsy after laying with my feet that high after half an hour, LOL! But now I'm on bedrest for high BP, so I am hoping the swelling will go down too since I'm not on my feet as much.<br><br>
Our ankles will be back soon!

I can't wait to get my ankles and feet back! I am down to 2 pairs of canvas shoes that fit... *sigh*. My ankles aren't as swollen in the AM as they are at night, but they are still swollen. I am thankful, though, because they are not quite as swollen as they were when I was pg with my DD!

All I can say is, my pedi is scheduled for Saturday afternoon...and I am only going cause I want the massage <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I went my last pregnancy to the same salon and the sweet lady there just worked and worked on getting that water to drain a bit. I swear it helped! Plus I went into labor within a couple days...one can hope right?!<br><br>
I'm feeling the Shrek feet about now...but at least everything will be well moisturized and trimmed clean. Can't say that about anything higher up the legs.... .... but that's a different post.
