Right foot swelling only

Hey ya'll. Haven't been on in quite some time... since the beginning of pregnancy really. Anywho... i'm 36 weeks and have had swelling for past couple of weeks (in feet and minimal in hands) that was of no concern to doc.... however, yesterday, my right foot began to swell.. lil larger than the left. I've read up that this is common as baby shifts and uterus presses down on main veins..anyone else experienced this?

What you read is correct but keep an eye on it because it could also mean that you've developed a clot in your leg somewhere. If it gets any bigger or doesn't go down with your feet propped up or over time, I'd consider calling the Dr. just to be sure. Good Luck!

I was told the samething, keep an eye out for one foot or leg being swollen and pain. It could mean blood clots. Of course I was told to drink water, prop my feet up and stay away from the salt
