Is anyone else terribly swollen? I mean - you can leave a neat dimple on my legs or feet (or arms or hands) if you poke me with a finger!
Got headaches, racing heart... queasy and throwing up still... gosh, wasn't this supposed to be the glowing energetic great time of being pregnant?

I wouldn't call it horrible, but I notice if I wear socks they leave a mark. I am itchy, though, and mostly my lower legs, like my calfs. I can itch forever. I asked OB about it and she said it's normal- yeah!

Kally please call your ob tomorrow. Pitting adema (sticking finger in and an indentation stays) with headaches could mean you have rising blood pressure. I hope you feel better soon hun. I hope you feel better soon too Jersey. DOes moisturizer help?test

My BP has been pretty high at my last visit - I go again on Thursday for a repeat u/s so they'll take my BP then too.
Think I'll call my OB anyway today - I just feel like crap!
The itching must be driving you crazy!! I get it a bit. But not that bad!

My rings are getting tight. I am getting HUGE. I keep packing on the pounds (don't know why) I havn' completely restricted sweets but in the past few weeks I don't think I am eating any different to before preg. Walking twice a day. Went hiking over the weekend 3 hours worth and still managed to gain 2 pounds. I am near 20 lbs (only 5') and 22 weeks. SCARY.
Yeah I would def. check in with your doc if you are not feeling well. I have had morn. sick each night (not bad just queasy in the night) I eat graham crackers and it helps.

This sounds all too familiar. First and foremost Blessedmama is right, it does sound like high bloodpressure. I know because that's what I have. I use to have bad headaches, swollen lower legs and ankles, etc. I am on meds now to keep my pressure under control and it has worked wonders.
The best remedy for the ankles is not to sit in one place for too long and also to keep your legs up as often as possible. I swell sometimes while at work because I am constantly sitting behind a desk, but once I get home and get into bed my legs/ankles go right down. There are pressure meds specifically for pregnant women but I'm sure your doctor will put you on the best one for you.
Also preeclampsia is also something you may want to get your doctor to check you for. Severe swelling can also be an indication of that. I hope this helps.
Best of luck.
