I went for a checkup before 13 days.
Please let me know swelling is normal now? 13 days back only i came from bangalore to tamilnadu.Swelling is because of climate change?Baby movements seems to be normal(10 kicks/day).

Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your blood & urine reports,but instead of getting usg obstetric doppler report I am getting just blank page there can be some technical error.
Your blood & urine reports are normal.
However in pregnancy swelling all over body is not a good sign it can be due to severe anemia, hypoproteinemia, pre-eclampsia.
As your hemoglobin is more than 10 severe anemia is ruled out
To rule out hypoproteinemia & pre-eclampsia get serum albumin & urine albumin test done.
If these test come normal then there is no need to be worried.
I will be available for your further queries.
