I had my daughter thursday night (1105pm) and my legs are noticably swollen, is this normal. I dont remember my legs swelling like this with my older daughter but its been almost 12 years.

Normal. At least from my experience. It was so bad after my first I had to wear my husband's shoes home! Took a few days to go back to normal. Congratulations on your baby!!

yep especially if you had the iv drip after delivery. I thought my swelling was bad before birth, it felt worse after! took a bit to go back to normal
