Re: Swelling @27 Weeks?

No, it's not too early. I had swelling earlier than 27 weeks, but it always went hand in hand with fast food or very salty foods.

Then, at Week 27, I was getting swollen feet and hands with terrible itching on a daily basis...even if I didn't eat fast food. I cut back heavily on the salt at Week 28 and it helped a little...then I cut back even more. Now in Week 29, my swelling in my ankles is gone.

My doctor (just this morning) said I will probably experience some swelling again as time passes because pregnant women just hold fluid whether we want to or not...but what I have done so far is excellent and he wants me to keep it up.

You are not alone with the swelling.
