    Has anyone had this this?

    I have been suffering with it for about 2 weeks now and some times it gets that bad that i can't walk cos the skin goes so tight on the calves.

    I know all the implacations of swelling and pre eclampsia as i had suspected pre eclampsia with Amy, but will they be concerned about it at this early stage? its usually 32 wks+ isn't it when they get concerned.

    I have the midwife tomorrow and i am just a little concerned about them asking me to go to hospital for checks.
    i was in and out with Amy and i know it is boring, especiall when you have another child to look after at home.

    :D :D :D

    Thanks New Bump

    I just was a bit concerned cos it's ok to be in hospital first time round, but when you have others to look after at home- i'd be really anxious about being in there.

    My fingers are swollen today and my skin is so sore at the moment with all the swelling.

    Why do we do this to ourselves!!! Lol Especially when you've already been through it once!! :D

    When i was having Amy my feet used to hang over the top of my slippers!!
    I feel for you hun, mine are not that bad yet but still sore.

    I bought a foot spa, put ice cold water in it and let my feet bubble away, it was great, it used to take the swelling down but it still didn't help me wallking cos my feet were numb!!! Lol
