This Is Just "Swell"
I have started noticing that my feet and ankles swell slightly when I am on them for even short periods of time... so that along with the blood pressure scare last week was enough to keep me off my feet almost completely all weekend long. But, this morning my right hand looked like I had little mini-marshmallows in each finger. I have had slight swelling in my hands off and on for a few weeks now from the carpel tunnel syndrome I recently developed (fairly common in the second half of pregnancy), but not quite as bad as today. I expected it to go down with rest, but here we are at 4:00 and it is still swollen (it has gone down some in my fingers, but the top of my hand is still really puffy). I am trying a cold compress now; maybe that will help!
