Hi all,

I've got swollen feet which I know is normal in pregnancy. But how swollen is normal? And why would one foot be more swollen than the other?

Thank you!!

How far along are you?
Swollen feet can be a sign of pre- eclampcia,
If you are further than about 25 wks i would phone the midwife so she can check your BP & Urine.
Good luck

Hi, thank you. I'm 33+3 today. I also need to talk to her as I'm really concerned that the baby is transverse. Thank you again smile

In the meantime elevate your feet slightly, that should help excess fluid drain and reduce the swelling

Yes, phone the MW as oedema is one of the things they want to know about.
