    One swollen leg?

    Hi ladies,

    After coming back from dinner & the movies last night I noticed one of my feet were rather swollen, my leg was slightly swollen too. I assume its from sitting with crossed legs during dinner and the movie. The swelling has gone down by 95% this morning. Should I be concerned? I've only started experience slight swelling during the past week (37/38 weeks pg) and its been both feet after walking standing for long periods.

    Has anyone else experienced this?



    Thanx

    My legs sometimes swelled unevenly. Since it has gone down now I would assume that it was because of the crossed legs.

    How exciting, she is nearly here!

    Reneenay, please go and get checked out... it's possible (though not very likely) that you have a DVT (clot in the veins) and it's far better to be safe than sorry!
