Swelling Of Hands And Feet

Kaeli - December 17

I have had on and off swelling of hands and legs through out my pregnancy, nothing serious. But for some reason tonight, just the right side of me is swollen. Anyone else have that or know what it is from? I look like I have a cankle on my right foot and my fingers look like sausages on my right hand. Any info would be great!

I had problems with swelling in the 3rd trimester (it got worse after baby was born and took about 2 weeks after to go away!). My midwife told me the swelling was worse on one side because of the way the baby was lying, putting more pressure on one side and slightly pinching off the blood and oxygen supply to that side. If you don't have sudden bad swelling in your face and your blood pressure is good then it should be ok. If you are rally concerned though, talk to your doctor. I used to do a few gentle stretches to try and get the baby to move and relieve a bit of the pressure, drink lots of water, and try to keep my feet above hip level
