Should you keep working if your legs swell(all the way up)due to standing? Am 32 weeks.

Probably not a good idea. This means you are retaining water, and i am experiencing the same thing, i am 37 weeks pregnant, you need to lay or sit with your feet elevated as high as you are comfortable, but you should not stay on your feet, get off them for a while and rest and then contine with what you are doing after the swelling goes down.

In addtion to what Angela said, you should also be drinking MORE water. It sounds funny to drink more when you're retaining, but trust me it's important. Otherwise you could end up with edema. Talk to your doc. too....can you take an early maternity leave or a medical leave?
