Bloating Benzino Due March 9 (boy); Tacoma, Washington 1 posts

Im 38 weeks today and within the last few weeks I've blown up. My face swelled up my hands and feet did too. Im afraid it wont go away after my little man is born. I don't believe its due to weight gain because it happened over night, I'm hoping its all water weight. Is this normal? and will the swelling go down? HELP!

I lost 35lbs 3 weeks after delivery most of it water weight

You will go back to normal! I'd be more concerned about it coming on so quickly and a lot

Severe swelling is a sign of pre e. Just make sure your doctor is aware!
