This is weird... I'm 34 weeks, and haven't REALLY had any issues (aside from the extreme bitchiness!) but...i recently (within the last week) started to notice that my left foot was swelling a little more than my right foot. I have a 7 year old, so yea, I'm fully aware that your feet are supposed to swell, but yesterday I REALLY noticed the difference. Today, my left foot has swollen up to be even MORE bigger than my right foot! It's like I have elephantitus or something! It's really painful to walk on, too...almost like a numbing sensation shooting all the way up my left leg. The swelling starts in my toes and goes all the way through my ankle and up my leg into my knee. When I stand up, the skin in the bend of my foot overlaps too, now. Almost like I have a small jelly roll on the top of my foot. It's REALLY painful and there's tons of pressure.
Has anyone else had this happen? Well, yea...I know that BOTH feet are supposed to swell...but just ONE foot? This is a little weird!
Thanks for listening to me complain...I can't WAIT to have this baby! LOL
Yeah - a week ago... and my whole left leg was noticeably gigantic compared to my right... it went away in the morning, but the swelling didn't go down til I went to sleep.... :)
You should get it checked out, it could be a blood clot.
that happened to me when i was preggo and the dr said it was the baby laying on a nerve causing my swelling in just my left foot... just keep you feet elevated as much as you can
I go to the doc on Monday...I'm gonna raise hell about it. I started noticing a slight difference right before my last appt 2 weeks ago, and the doc didn't seem to care. Just said that there's nothing I can do about it...that the baby's just sitting on a nerve...so I let it go. but, I started noticing the pain yesterday and the day before...and it's even worse (and bigger today!) I deliver pizza for a living on Fri & Sat nights so Im really hoping this doesn't get any worse before tomorrow...if it does Im in for a hell of a lot more pain....
I have the same thing going on in my rigth foot. Its been like that for almost 2 months. The doc was concerned so he ordered a ultrasound for my legs to check for a clot. There wasnt one. But ask your doc jus in case.
isn't elephantitis when you have really gigantic testicles?

ROFLMAO! THAT is funny! I thought you could get that stuff anywhere though.... I didn't know it was just limited to balls ROFL :) Now, my foot hasn't swollen up quite THAT huge...perhaps it was an exaggeration, but...damn if it don't hurt like hell!
I couldn't imagine balls that big.... makes pushing out a kid look kinda easy
