    I wouldn't be complaining about 4 days.

  • A puffy face could be a sign of pre-eclampsia. Please call your dr.

  • I saw my dr yesterday and he said not to worry its just water weight :/
  • What do you ladies think?

    I mean, how are we supposed to know? We have no way of comparing how you looked previously. If your Dr. isn't concerned you shouldn't be. If you don't trust your Dr. you should call back and tell him/her your concerns.

    It took me 9months to lose all the baby weight with DS. Just one of those lucky ladies who couldn't lose weight while BFing, I guess.

  • If you already discussed it with your OB and he/she isn't concerned, I wouldn't be. If you are doubting now, call them.

    Me too.  Some days, I look like I'm storing nuts for the winter.

    Everyone has told me to drink more water.  My doula said to put some salt in it--I've been doing Smart Water instead.  Some days, I think it's helping.  Other days, it looks worse.  

    I think a lot of mine is happening because of pregnancy-related congestion.  So over it.  I haven't been able to breathe well in months, and it's worse at night.  I've gotten sinus infection after sinus infection...even while being allowed to take some allergy meds.  Grrrr.
