Re: swelling during pregnancy

Mine swell pretty equal. As long as there is no redness or pain, then it is likely a circulation issue. Make sure you drink a lot (counter-intuitive, but staying well hydrated helps with water retention), watch salt as much as your cravings will let you, and if you want to try compression hose make sure you get fitted properly, and only buy maternity compression hose, not the kind they stock at the drugstore.
Pharmacist, wife to a nerdy chemist, and proud mama to Leta (12/2006), Derek (4/2009) and Viola (7/2012). Now if only I could figure out a way to quit my job and still pay my student loans all would be well with the world.
