    Ok ladies, a very strange question but putting it out there.
    In the last 2 weeks I have been getting this dry/tight feeling in my feet. Its really annoying and I notice it more when Im trying to sleep or maybe its because I'm paying attention to it more?
    My ankles and slightly swollen, not much (only I could tell)
    Im almost 12 weeks as of Wednesday.
    I don't have dry feet, they feel softish and no matter how much moisturiser I put on, it doesnt help.
    Google says nothing and not sure how to explain it to the doc without her looking at me weird? Im hoping its not all in my head and maybe a pregnancy thing?
    Anyone else have this by any chance?

    I totally get you. I get this occasionally in hot weather and have been known to cover my feet in moisturiser from the fridge. Another trick is to try wearing damp socks.

    I'm sure it will be something to do with your core temperature being higher in pregnancy /higher fluid retention but its worth getting checked out by your GP in case it is something to do with blood pressure.
