I have had a swollen foot for a little over a week and a half. I thought it was a spider bite, but it still hasnt gone away. I am 3 weeks pregnant, could this have anything to do with it? Please help me.

Many women experience swollen feet during pregnancy but usually in the last few months when they are almost due. Since you are only 3 weeks pregnant and it has been swollen for a week in a half, you might want to show it to a doctor. Why did you think it was a spider bite? Did you see a spider? I got bit by a spider on the head once and my whole face swelled. It was a horrible sight. It only lasted 24 hours though. Do get it checked out. How swollen is it?

I had it checked and he said it probably was a bite. BUt my doctor says whatever. He has said so many things, then changes his mind about it. So I dont trust a word he says. lol. Im going to see a different doctor. I dont trust the one I have with Caring for me and my baby. =]

Did this happen before you started caring for your parents' animals? I agree with you finding another doctor. You have to be able to trust and feel confident in your care provider. By the way how did it go helping your parents out?

yes. it happened before I helped with the animals. I was 2 days after I was walking in a field with my parents while they were getting hay for the animals. Thats when I thought I got bit by something. Like, maybe a spider out in the field, because my mom is allergic to spiders and so is my sister.
