Lots of swelling here! I have chubby sausage fingers, swollen calves, ankles and feet. My husband commented the other day how little my toes look now because my feet are so swollen. I do not have pre-eclampsia either. I was just there today and there was no protein in my urine and my blood pressure is "perfect" - his words!
It is in most cases perfectly normal. Especially in the 3rd trimester. I just started my 8th month and have been swelling like this for several weeks. I haven't been able to wear my wedding rings for a good month and a half. The last time I had them on I forced them on and literally cried while trying to take them off. I had to completely soap up my hands and work at them for a good 15 minutes before they came off. I'll tell ya, they are not going anywhere near my fingers again until a few months after I have my baby!
Suggestions to get rings off: try in the morning, not at the end of the day when the swelling is the worst. Try soap, butter, oil or hand cream. Make sure the rings are all covered and that it's between the rings and your fingers. Little by little and if it starts to hurt really bad: STOP!
Keep us posted and congrats on your pregnancy!
