I'm just having a moan.

As above, I'm 36+4, slightly swollen calves/feet/fingers but I'm 99% sure it's just the heat. They are soooooo warm and itchy and I want to chop them all off. Surely that would better than the current option confused

I tried a soak in the foot spa but they were worse when I took them out hmm argh!!!

Did you soak them in hot or cold water? I find cold best but worth trying the opposite of whichever temperature you've tried. Not sure what you can do about your fingers but for feet and leg swelling I've had success with lying on the floor and shuffling my bum up tight to a wall, then leaning my legs up the wall so I'm on my back at 90 degrees to the wall, with my legs bent up at 90 degrees from my body, if that makes sense? Then stay like that for as long as you can.
The swelling and itching is horrible though, and there's not much you can do to fully relieve it IME.

37 weeks here and my feet are swollen too! I thought I'd gotten away with it as it's only happened this week.
