    Default Pelvic pain and huge ankles!!

    I'm 26 weeks and I'm starting to have some serious pelvic pain and today MASSIVE ankles
    I've had 2 previous pregnancies and not dealt with this before - I'm sooo sore. I'm working full time in a fairly sedentary job, I try to walk around a bit. Getting up out of my chair and those first few steps are a killer.. When i got home today and realized my ankles are huge too.

    Any advice on how to get some relief? Or is a physio or GP appointment in order?

    I've got 12 (ish) weeks to go, in not meant to be this sore, huge, this early

    Have you called birth suites to see if they have any suggestions? Is your blood pressure ok? Give birth suite where you are delivering a call and see what they say

    Please go get checked, it's probably fine but since I developed preeclampsia in2016 I'm a bit wary of swelling in pregnancy.
    I blew up a lot it was my first sign...

    Good luck

    I though this was too early for pre eclampsia? It does reduce by the morning... I have a dr appointment for Wednesday. My bp has been spot on and only had an ob appointment the day before the swelling started.

    I was diagnosed with preeclampsia at 31 weeks. Symptoms started at 28-29 weeks and the first sign was swollen fingers and ankles and a headache which literally started overnight and I put down to just late pregnancy symptoms. I ended up severely unwell in icu delivering my baby via emergency c-section and we were both in hospital for 2 weeks. It can come on super quick. Even when I was put on blood pressure medication and checked every 2 days it still went crazy. So please get checked. Definitely worth a call to ob tomorrow - always better to be safe.

    Update - I've contacted the hospital, I only have one swollen ankle now which they agreed was odd but they weren't overly concerned.. I'm seeing my GP next week and have the long weekend to rest it.
    Thanks for the advice

    I was diagnosed with preeclampsia at 30w and delivered at 32w. I was in hospital from 30w. It came on suddenly. I know of people getting it at 25w.
    Better safe than sorry
