How many weeks are you? It's very common to have swollen ankles and feet towards the end of pregnancy however it is also a sign of pre eclampsia so you need to be careful. Any swelling anywhere else like your hands?
My feet and ankles were pretty huge towards the end but no other symptoms. No pain with it. DD is a week old today and I can now see my ankles again
I had this as a result of standing up too much. I rang the midwife & was told to lie down & see if that helped. It would be worth calling the midwife or your local epu for advice, they might want to check you out just to be safe.
Please get it checked out this morning (both of you!), I developed pre-eclampsia at 36 weeks and it was very serious. My feet were swollen but being 36 weeks pregnant and the height of summer abroad I thought that was normal.
The fact that the skin is tight is a very worrying sign.
Yes what Down said. If it comes and goes say if you do long days on your feet it's not such an issue but it needs checking out. Try to sit with your feet elevated as much as possible to reduce the swelling.
I swelled up massively with ds. Even up my abdomen arms, hands and face. Couldn't even got those huge croc shoes on they were so swollen. Midwives never seemed concerned at all and I never developed pre eclampsia and had him in mlu. Best to get checked tho.
