Re: swollen legs...

I had toxemia and my legs and arms were really swollen most of my preg. I began to swell really early. By the last trimester when my doc would push his fingers in my leg I would have an indention there for a week at least. If you are really concerned ask your doc and he will press down and as long as it pops back up you are ok. Ifit stays down you have a lot of water retenion. I found eating watermelon or cantalope and drinking water did help my swelling early on..and watch the salt. I am preg. with my second and if I walk around or don't prop my feet up then I start to swell. I am only 12 weeks.
