So I might just be gaining weight in weird select places, I dont know, but I feel like my knees are swelling! My feet and ankles havent changed at all.. Do knees even swell during pregnancy? I didnt get this with my first pregnancy..

Does anyone else have this or know what Im talking about?

I haven't had any swelling in my knees, but I have had major swelling in the joints of my hands and feet. I also haven't had any other swelling problems. I went to my OB, who sent me to my General Practitioner. According to the GP, joint swelling isn't particularly normal. They've drawn some blood (I should know this week what's going on) and put me on the steroid Prednisone to help with the joint swelling and pain. I feel like a new woman. No pain! Yay!

I would recommend that you see your doctor. When we're pregnant we tend to just brush everything off as "side effect of pregnancy." However, you could have an underlying health issue.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
