With DS towards the end I gained a BUNCH of water weight! I mean I went into the hospital on Monday at 151lbs, I got home and I was 120! My LO only weight 5lbs10oz! I was so swollen all over I looked ridiculous! I'm not swollen with this one yet, but I bet it will come to me in the summer.
I was very swollen with DS. I went from 7 1/2 shoe to size 11...my feet were so swollen and my toes looked like little sausages. My face was swollen, hands, wrist, and legs. I lost 30 lbs. by the time I got home from the hospital. That didn't start until my 5th month though. If you're swelling really bad, I would call your doctor just as a precaution. I know that is the first thing she checks on me at each visit because I had such a problem with swelling last time.
