yikes! Thighs down, I keep looking in the mirror saying "whose legs are these??" SO FAR, THANK GOODNESS, my bp is okay.... so the obgyn feels its just fluid retention, also from the heat. She has me in support hose now.. ugh.. I am worried about how big my legs are going to get, and what will happen... I am almost 25 weeks along now and someone has replaced my legs with sausages. Ack. Also weird, my nipples now have dark splotches of color. I knew they changed color, but didnt think it would be in some areas only. Anyone else have this? and yes, at different times of day my belly is bigger than others...

I am 23 weeks and my ankles and lower legs have been swelling for several weeks now. I hate the way it makes my legs feel. They feel so heavy sometimes when I walk. It puts at least an extra 5 pounds on me when this happens. When my hands swell they feel so tight and can be quite annoying. My BP has been just fine and has never gone up. I was told this is normal due to the veins having pressure being put on them due to the enlarging uterus and due to the extra 50% fluid our heart has to push around. It is just harder to get the fluid from our legs back up above the uterus that it moves into the tissues to cause them to swell. As long as the face does not swell then it should be okay as far as the BP goes. Just need to keep an eye on it.
