Weird Swelling w/ bruising???

My legs/feet are swollen...and where the top of my socks were (which were my hubbys and NOT tight) there is bruising? On both legs...?
I have no clue? I can't find anything online...?

is it a LOT of swelling? Might be good to call your care provider. Try putting your feet in a cold bath and then put them up for a bit. See if that takes the swelling down.

Good idea azin_may - I would also try to soak them, elevate them and maybe even have DH rub them Wink And see what happens, if not like she said give your doctor a call... I remember I had horrible swelling in my feet with my first pregnancy and with my second, only when I tried taking DD#1 to Busch Gardens at 7.5 months pregnant LOL did it get bad, I had some here and there but I also had more of an opportunity to elevate as I needed to which helped.

I always retain a lot of water when I am pregnant - so I always see that kind of swelling around where my socks are, but never bruising. I agree with the advice you got above - and def call your OB. Smile

Thank you all. The bruising went away...still swollen...I didn't wear socks today...
I put my feet up and that seemed to help a lot.
