Yep, the swelling is still here. I think it's better today though. Yesterday we were installing crown moulding, which meant being on my feet a lot, so all the gains from Saturday were lost. But today is getting better. I was getting a bit stressed because severe swelling can be a symptom of pre-eclampsia. And of course, I have no idea what 'normal' swelling is, so I didn't know if mine was outside the normal realm.
I shouldn't have worried. I had a midwife appointment this morning, and my blood pressure is great and there is no protien in my urine (real symptoms of pre-eclampsia). I was stressed for nothing. However, my weight gain was ridiculous for only 2.5 weeks. I'm sure more than half of it was the water sloshing around in my lower legs though. The midwife said to swim and to keep drinking lots of water. I'll go to the pool tonight and see if that helps.
Otherwise, everything is great. Still measuring perfectly, heart beat, blood pressure - all great. I have another appointment in two weeks, and then I start going in every week. That means we're getting close!
