OMG my ankles are suddenly HUGE!! Proper cankles and my toes look like cocktail sausages
I was going to lie down with my feet up but the mw said not to raise my legs up as i am trying to get baby to turn from being back to back. I guess they might go down overnight.....!
Man i feel sexy

Jeez M! Just checking, she check your bp?
I've noticed mine have disappeared in the last few days, and my feet have swollen up too - I'd be sitting here with my feet up on my ball, but it's more important to me to get baby fully engaged rather than worry about fat feet
Am also hoping its the start of something as with C my feet swelled up a couple of days before she arrived.....

HOLY COW I've just seen your pic. Have you had your BP checked in recent days?
Yeah all was ok at consultant appt last Weds. No other symptoms and nothing else swollen so guess i spent too long on my feet today!! X

When did they start swelling? I know I bang on about it but high bp can literally come on in a click of a finger, so last weds could be fine, even yesterday if could be fine but today it could be high.

I guess i noticed they were a bit podgy around 6pm. Wouldnt i have other symptoms like headaches and things?

Possibly - try and keep them elevated in bed tonight, call the midwife in the morning if they haven't gone down at all. I know geordiebarbie had real problems with swollen feet, as did one of my friends (thankfully not PE related) so it could be all innocuous, but better to be safe than sorry.

Not necessarily. Drop into the mw or GPS or even some pharmacys. Just to be safe.

The mw responded to the message i left first thing about half an hour ago (she is rubbish!). She asked me to call the hospital who said just keep an eye on it and call back if i get any other symptoms like a bad headache, chest pain or black dots in front of my eyes. They are still puffy but not as bad as yesterday. Thank you for asking. Hope you are doing ok too and all that walking evicts Elvis xx
