    Lots and lots of water and rest as much as you can or at least put your legs up. I hate swelling! I've managed to avoid swelling too much, but I have to wear loose shoes and no wedding ring!
    Make sure and let your OB know if the swelling get to be a lot.

    All you can do is put up those legs and drink, drink, drink. And yes it will make you go, and go, and go to the bathroom. I am having a horrible time with the swelling. But the Dr. says we can still see the outline of my ankles and my wrists so we are good for now!!!

    Hope you are feeling back o normal soon.

    Lisa - You might want to call your doctor. I've been having swelling for about a week now. I didn't think much of it. Well, at the doctor yesterday I had High BP ( usually low) and protein in my urine. Turns out I have Preeclampsia. The doctor is very concerned. I'm on sitrict orders to stay off my feet, keep them elevated, drink lots of water and go back in less than a week. I've also been having a lot more contractions, which is not good. If I'm not better by my next visit I will be put on bed rest and maybe in the hospital. She is hoping I can make it to 37 weeks at this point. It really scared me. It can be very dangerous for me and the baby. And - here is why I worry about you - It is more common in women with GD. I don't want to scare you, but I wanted to give you a heads up.

    Love,
    Erin

    Oh Erin...I PMed you...but, more questions: Did you have any symptoms??

    Also, I notice my left foot swollen but not really on the right...now my left is also the foot that is broken, but that swelling went away long ago...I wonder if it just comes back or is preg related.

    Drink lots of water and try to stay off your feet as much as possible. When you are sitting, make sure your feet are up!

    Also, make sure your doctor knows that you have started to swell. Everything is fine.....they should just know about any changes.

    Hang in there sweetie!
