The results of the Progenity test came back. Our baby is a boy and all of the chromosome issues were clear.

This week, I’m experiencing swelling in one foot but not the other. If you are experiencing this, contact your health professional immediately.
After testing, I was cleared. Later, I figured out I was causing the condition myself because I was already suffering from edema and had a habit of sitting in a chair with one foot under my butt and the other dangling. When both feet were elevated, the swelling evened out. (Note: However, later in the pregnancy I did develop a serious case of preeclampsia).
Swelling on one side can be a very serious – and even life threatening – condition.
Common causes of swelling on one side of the body include:
- onset of preeclampsia
- allergic reaction
- blood clots (veinous thrombosis)
- heart conditions
In pregnancy, the most common causes for one sided swelling are bloot cots, diabetes, and preeclampsia.
