Hello everyone,


I am 6 weeks post c-section and still extremely swollen all over my body. I look inflated. Have not lost any weight, even gained a bit more.


My OB scheduled me for an echocardiogram today. I am worried.


Have any of you experienced anything like this?

Me (33), DH (42), DS ( 13,5 months , born 6 weeks early)

I'm glad you are under a doctor's care. I do typically swell like crazy about 5 days after the procedure and gain a few pounds from where I was before delivery -- and then over the next few weeks I gradually lose the fluid through night sweats. Ugg! I hope that they find that nothing is wrong and that you start losing the fluid soon -- please do keep us posted!
