Anyone else suffering from extremely swollen feet and ankles? I am at 7 months... bp is normal etc... but my feet and ankles are so swollen sometimes it even hurts to touch the front of my calves or stand on my legs.

I haven't seen anyone else complain about this. My appt with my gyn isn't for another 2 weeks.

Re: Cankles

I am 34wks5ds and I have this problem, and only just recently too. For about the past 2 weeks I couldn't figure out why my ankles and feet felt like they were going to just split on the sides when I walked, then I decided to get a closer look and my feet look like sausages stuffed in socks and my toes look like chicken mcnuggets. LOL. Maybe I am exaggerating just a wee bit but honestly, thats what it feels like. It's horrible and uncomfortable. I have had pretty significant sweeling in my thighs and lower legs for a while now, but never in my feet like untill 2 weeks ago. My blood pressure and everything is normal, the doctors just tell me its to be expected because of the weight of the baby making the blood pool up in those areas and well the bigger he gets the more swelling I seem to do. Also I notice on days that I drink more fluid, the swelling gets even worse.
