Hi ladies.

My feet are seriously swollen - I've put a photo on my profile page - http://www.mumsnet.com/member/photo-preview

Any advice? I've got them elevated but still in pain and throbbing and numbish too. And in getting hideous heartburn from lying in this position!

Trying to get a gp appt but have to call back in the morning first thing.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I've just seen BP monitors in Lidl this morning. Didn't look at the price though, sorry.

Hi all thanks for the support!

Definitely no protein in my urine, bp absolutely fine, and GP said nothing to worry about. He checked for sth else in my urine too but it wasn't there and he was happy about that.

I am seeing GD clinic obstetrician and midwife on weds and have a scan booked too.

So all is ok for now. smile

Hooray , good news smileSorry I didn't mean to scare you but you do need to be very careful as there can be no symptoms at all.

pop your poor tired puffy body in a bath with epsom salts, then after an hour or so rush to the toilet to pee out your cankles wink

Good news OP, do mention it when your at your GD appointment, I've noticed my swelling going down now I have control of my sugars.

Hahaha karma I would love to pee out my cankles!!!! Oh that made me smile!!! grin

They are much better but still not 100% normal.

Will try swimming tomorrow hopefully smile
