    Default Swollen ankles??

    Make sure you are drinking enough water!!! My swelling would always go down once I got on top of my fluid intake. My midwife said 2-3l to ensure both bub and I have enough fluid.

    Was just popping in to say the same thing...... If you aren't drinking enough water you will retain fluid and if you are drinking things that dehydrate you, like juice/cordial/caffeinated drinks etc you need to be drinking extra.

    Also, some form of compression is great. If you can afford them the SRC pregnancy pants are amazing, but if not the stockings air hostesses wear are very helpful as well!

    maybe some hydralyte (or similar from chemist) first up in the morning to help stabalise electrolytes etc might be worth looking in to. have a chat to your local pharmacist.

    Default Swollen ankles??

    I don't have the swollen ankles problem but I do find my ankles are really sore if I've walked even from my car to the front door of work. I used to be able to walk k's and not have a problem.
    I am having the itchy feet part though and I find if I spray antiseptic alcohol on my feet and let it sit with a fan on the skin then that helps a lot.
