    Default Facial Swelling...

    Hi Everyone,
    Currently 26wks with my first...
    The last week I have really "popped" and am sporting a beautiful bump, however my face is so swollen even my partner has commented on the "mooness". Also while visiting family I was told "gee, you've piled it on"...which hasn't done wonders for the confidence.
    My last MW app I had only gained 2kgs between the 11-20wks. Which I though was great! All up I'd say I've put on 8kgs.
    I can't exercise as I have a dodgy ankle from a tennis accident, so after a full day of work that also swells up- but now I'm paranoid that I'm "blowing out"...
    Does anyone have any ideas to reduce swelling in the face?

    Get checked for pre-eclampsia now. signs include puffy arms, legs, face, seeing spots, head aches, high blood pressure, protein in urine.. Puffiness is a huge clue that something is not right. Pre eclampsia can have many or few symptoms and of left untreated can be very harmful to you and bub, fatal even.

    I think you should talk to your dr or midwife about this, like today. I know swelling of the face is a symptom of preeclampsia. It might not be this, but better to err on the side of caution.
