I think mine was instant and sadly its got worse im now 39+2 and have given up with socks because i cant get them on but also they leave huge craters in my skin. Even without socks my ankles look creased iv never seen such swollen feet and ankles. My legs feel tight too. Mw said she wasmt concerned as there is no pain and blood presure etc is good. Mine is just water retention my mum was the same, she said after i was born she spent most of her time weeing lol
I was a size 8 b4 pg but i've had to buy extra large leggings and footless tights because of swollen ankles. Think i might start stealing the bf's big socks too! I think my swollen ankles started about the same time as yours Danni!
I'm 33 weeks and started to swell about a fortnight ago. Last time I was much earlier but it was a summer pregnancy - so for the first time in my life I am feeling thankful that the weather is still cool!
Theres nothing wrong with mans sox i never have womens one i just dont see the point lol a sock is a sock or pair of em, shouldnt realy be a fashion thing as you dont see them! Loool mind you i needed em doin the job i used to do xx
Around 30 weeks, it was last summer and my sandals left cut marks in my feet! All I could wear were those foam beach flip flops in the largest size available and even they left marks! Check it out though as I had pre-eclampsia and also developed HELLP syndrome x
I don't want to worry anyone- but do please get any swelling of feet and ankles and hands and pqrticularly the face checked out. Yes it's usually just a normal pregnancy symptom- but it can be a sign of something more serious. If you also get a headache or any sort of visual disturbance with it go straight to your OOH or even A&E. It will in all probability be nothing- but it can be the beginning of pre eclampsia. Please don't ignore it.....
For those that haven't swelled yet - I only did after giving birth. I managed a boiling hot summer with no swelling, and two days after I have birth I found myself in compression stockings with swollen feet and ankles. It lasted about a week, and there was no raised BP.
