    Hey girls -

    Oddly enough, drink plenty of water - not other fluids, but water, and that will help take swelling down by flushing out your system!

    That, and if you get really worried, like if your face and ankles are puffy too, then ask your GP pr midwife to take your BP and test your urine, particularly if you have more than 900g weight gain in a day that isn't related to overeating.

    Take care
    Sue

    Hi

    Thanks for that Sue, but i drink 3 litres of water a day, no caffine at all.

    My ankles are swollen but are quite hard. i have midwife on the 8 December, but i am not worried at the moment as i feel okay so far.

    my wedding and engagement rings were loose before i fell pregnant. i think that i am going to buy a silver ring to wear as a wedding ring, as i dont like the thought of not wearing it now.
