Ankles? Not anymore.

I forgot how lovely it was to be pregnant in July! I hope I can survive the next 8 weeks...

Me too. this is my first summer pregnancy and it hasn't been fun. Looks like another week of high 90's and into the 100's and no rain. I much prefer being pregnant in the winter.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.

Re: Ankles? Not anymore.

Yeah, here too. Though if I sit around for a couple days and drink loooooots of water the swelling goes down. But who can get anything done sitting around all day?? I mean laying down! Sitting down for me causes swollen ankles along with standing. I actually have to sit on the couch with my feet up or lay in bed for it to go down

Sorry mamas! I've been fortunate with this pregnancy that the swelling has been very minimal (and no idea how I've managed to keep it that way with the heat) but my first was a July baby and OMG, saying I was swollen would be a huge understatement. I couldn't wear shoes, at all!

Re: Ankles? Not anymore.

ahhh, you too? I went to watch DS play in the water fountains the other day for about 1/2 an hour. When we were done I couldn't get my feet back in my sandals!

Me too, hon! My feet and ankles are swollen and hurt. I hate sitting down all day, but that's the only way I get relief. So I try to do every other day of just resting and snuggling w DD. But it's hard with a toddler! haha

Good luck

I've been waking up with a bit of swelling on my feet, then it just grows all day. It's not encouraging to start out puffy.

Hang in there, all of us!!

Just started happening to me. And something's wrong with my left foot, so between sciatic pain, a big belly, swelling and a limp... I look pretty hilarious as I attempt to move around the house.
