Has anyone else been swelling a lot. When I am at work I seem to retain so much fluid. My fingers swell so bad i have to take my rings off, and my ankles swell too. i sit at work all day with walking to get things, but if this is going to do this everyday it's going to stink!!! i am 25 weeks

You need to call your doctors office & let them know (if they don;t already) Swelling like that is normal, but it can also be a sign of pre-eclampsia that you should get checked out.

I'm in my 27th week and going through a little bit of a heat wave in NJ. By the end of the day my ankles are very swollen. My hands are not as bad but as far as what I can tell and what my doctor tells me everything is okay. It sometimes is just a combination of fluid retention and hot weather. If you can put something under your desk to elevate your feet a little it will help. The more I try to stay off them the better it is also. Now this may sound crazy but it feels great....try a foot spa with cold water and epsom salt. Just watch your blood pressure and if there's any swelling around your face.

my ankles, mostly the right one, are swelling some days.... I called the dr and they said if it is not accompanied with high blood pressure its probably water retention, so put your feet up and drink a lot so your body flushes the fluid, and keep and eye on the BP. my foot looks so ugly. :(
