swelling at 24 weeks already????

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

I woke up yesterday and I could barely get my wedding ring off to wash my face. I got to work and had to eventually take off my watch because it was sooo tight. I laughed at first and thought, wow I can't believe Im swelling already, I still have four months to go! When I got home, I took off my boots (which I did not feel were tight, at all) and I instantly felt a sensation in my feet I had never felt before. They were hot and felt like they itched and then I realized, when I walked it was painful. Is it normal to have swelling to this degree at this point in time?? Im worried about preclampsia :-/ My next doctor appt is next tuesday.

No other signs, other than the swelling. I was told tho that I need to take it easy. Yesterday a couple of people expressed to me that I am more active than most (which I'm used to) and I can't be such a "busy body" anymore while im with child because my body could (is) being affected by it. So I guess I better listen to my body :-/ Thanks ladies for your input :-)

It's so hard to slow down, isn't it? lol. You think we'd take that news with great relief. :) And they say not everyone gets symptoms of preeclampsia because most of it is just normal stuff that happens during pregnancy, so I would still call your doctor. Good luck with everything!

I would definitely call your doc asap just to be safe. Do you have any other signs of preeclampsia - like headaches? I hope everything's okay! Please keep me updated. :)

have you called your doctor and asked her about it? i'm 30 weeks, and i've started swelling a bit but it's usually when i'm really active.
