A Swollen Foot
Hi again :)

We are all thriving in general, the twins and I.

However, my foot has been swollen for about a week now (I am almost 27 weeks pregnant). My foot started to become distended as the weather got warmer (we live in Malta). The temperature is a little lower now, however, my foot is still swollen.

It does not hurt, and I have not hurt my foot or leg previously.

Can I take a diuretic? What else can I do to relieve the swelling? Lying down with the foot up has not had any effect.

Best regards
Rikke
