It's Fuddfest week and that means a lot of running around and standing up mingling with our great listeners, the last thing I need is ankle and knee pain!
I'm at 27 weeks right now just into my 3rd trimester and this ankle and knee pain just started. I know there could be a lot of different things causing this. Loosening of tendons and ligaments while my body prepares to for birth. I read that it could be pregnancy arthritis which is a build up of fluid in the joints that will go away once the baby is born. Or it could be something else all together.
The soreness I'm feeling isn't painful enough to keep me off my feet, it's just uncomfortable. And there's no swelling to go along with the pain. Today I'm going to focus on drinking lots and lots of water and snacking often as well as sitting and putting my feet up as much as possible.
I'm writing this down on my handy Ministry Saint Michael's Hospital note pad to talk to the doctor about at my next visit.
Did you have any joint pain when you were pregnant? What did it turn out to be?
