    In the last week my ankles have started to become swollen by the end of the day.
    Is anyone else finding this - they don't look swollen apart from where my socks have dug in, they just feel it.

    It's annoying me now.

    I haven't experienced this yet in this pregnancy. I remember in the last couple weeks of my pregnancy with James my feet swelled up so much I couldn't get my shoes on!

    Luckily I haven't had this yet, I thought I might as I have cankles anyway :rotfl:

    Make sure you get your feet up above your heart for a few hours in the evening...just stick some cushions under them on the sofa or foot stool.

    Hope it is a short lived problem! :hug:

    I'm having the same problem and I'm not as far gone!
    I put some boots on the other day, forced my feet into them, realised it wasn't going to work and had to get my OH to pull them off as I couldn't! Stick your feet up as much as poss :) my knees are swollen too
