Unhappy 16 Weeks and SWOLLEN!

Hi there

Just wondering why I'm so swollen already. Middle of my 4th month and my ankles were balloons last night. Is that normal? I feel like it is too early to be so swollen.
Happy to say I'm due with our first born 9/11/06

I would call your doc and let him know, I would think its alittle early too. But he would know the best.

Re: 16 Weeks and SWOLLEN!

Good idea to call your Dr. But also make sure you are drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day. This will help you to not retain fluid which causes swelling. Excessive swelling could be signs that some things are off so it is good to tell your Dr about it. But make sure you are drinking enough fluids! This was the cause of my swelling in the past.

I had a dr. appt. this morning, the dr. told me my swelling is normal. I do need to get better about the water! Everything was great though, the baby's heartbeat was loud and strong.....I find out the sex on April 21st!
