Hello all Just wondered if those of you in your third trimester are getting a bit puffy in the heat. I have a history of pre-eclampsia so it is especially worrying me but my blood pressure and urine are fine. Can you keep your rings on and wear your usual shoes?
Haven't been able to wear my rings for about 4 weeks and two weekends ago had to go buy emergency shoes for a wedding party (two sizes bigger than my usual) because I couldn't fit into the bigger ones I'd already bought.
I feel like my hands have got mickey mouse style gloves on them.
I've been a bit worried about PE, but my bp and urine have been fine every time they've been tested.
Yep, realised that my ankles felt all tight when I went to bed last night (am 30wks)....first time they've swollen this preg, although I remember them doing the same a little later on (34+wks) in my previous 2 pregs. Defo the hot weather, altho fortunately they've gone down abit now as its cooled off a little, and luckily not affecting my fingers yet (although now getting carpal tunnel at night - drives me mad!!)
Yup. Engagement ring is back in its box in my sock drawer. None of my shoes fit. One hand is so swollen i can't even squeeze the toothpaste tube in the mornings! My midwife says it is normal (BP is still fine) but if you're worried you should obviously check with yours.
