When I was pregnant with my daughter I feel like my ankles (and subsequently feet and legs) were swollen for half the pregnancy . I assumed that my degree of swelling, particularly in the last trimester was primarily due to my weight gain and eventually high blood pressure.
Although I'm sure both of those things are factors, this time around, my blood pressure is good and both my starting weight and overall weight gain has been under control. However, it seems that the moment my third trimester hit, my ankles started to swell.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce or even eliminate the swelling?
