Did You Have Cankles?

Did You Get Swollen Feet and Ankles?

Many women have to put up with the irritable and self-described "unsightly" issue of cankles (peripheral edema, medically speaking) late in their pregnancies. As a mother-to-be spends more time on her feet and the bodily fluids continue to multiply, the evidence of thicker legs and ankles often becomes evident.

Moms take note: Excessive swelling may be a sign of pre-eclampsia, a serious condition sometimes called toxemia, that includes high blood pressure and swelling.
