I dont know what to do!

My whole body feeels like it is burning up. I took my temp it is 97.5.
My fingers are swelling. Nothing else just my fingers. I feel extremely exhausted. I just slept for a hour and wanna go back to bed. It's not normal, because i slept 9 hours lastnight. I called my DR, and she told me swelling was normal in the 2nd trimester (im 22 weeks 4 days) and that im probably hot because of hormones. I dont know I just hope she is right.Could this be pre-eclampsia or something??? Im so scared! I just feel crappy!

So this is normal? This is something that comes with pregnancy? I shouldnt be concerned? I dont know what to think. I can deal with all of this as long as I know that my baby is going to be ok! I dont want my DR telling me that its all normal just to end up having pre-eclampsia or something to the sort. I am just paranoid as it is, but this is scary. Thank you for your reply i appreciate it!

Re: Help READ

GRRRR, I have the same problem. My fingers are all swelled up. My feet too, but not my ankles....Weird, and I swear I feel like I am going through menopause....while pregnant? ha ha....One minute, I feel like someone threw me into a cooker, the next minute, I am freezing. I talked to my doc and he also said it was pretty normal to feel this way. Some women can just glide through pregnancy without anything like this, and be perfectly comfortable. But then there are some (us) that get really uncomfortable right around this time. I am 27 wks 3 days and I am MISERABLE. I feel like a freaking beached whale and I LOOK like I swallowed a basketball or something. I dont mind the big belly, but it is getting heavy or something.

I wish you luck. Take it easy. If you body tells you to sleep....Sleep. Our babies are growing rapidly and gaining a lot of weight right now. It takes a lot of energy from us to grow a person in there. ya know?

Re: Help READ

It's always a good ideal to take of any rings you wear while pregnant. the usual swelling is bad enough but any sudden swelling can cause your rings to be so tight you have to have them cut off. not something you want to do to your best rings.
