Today I woke up and my left side was swollen, not horribly swollen but enough that my calf felt tight, my ankle was puffy and I had to stuff myself into my shoes. I don’t recall anything different the day before, but at my Dr. appointment on Wednesday, Dr. H mentioned that it could change on a dime and symptoms of Preeclampsia could settle in. So being a bit worried, I headed into work with my lemon juice and cucumbers (natural diuretic) and tried not to worry all day. Things didn’t get worse, but they didn’t get better either. So after work I made a quick pit stop at the grocery store to test my blood pressure. 95/65 – perfect! I ended up buying a home blood pressure tester as well, just so I can test at anytime day or night. I got home a few hours ago and have been laying on my left side drinking tons of water. The good news is that the swelling has subsided and my ankle seems to be back to normal, along with any additional swelling on the other side. Big sigh of relief….
