Puffy face:37weeks pregnant

Hi dr,

Is it normal that my face looks swolen and eyes puffy? I' m 37 weeks pregnant on thursday. My dr is happy with everything...bit of sugar in urine but did the glucose tolerance test and everything fine. My hands and feet doesn' t look swolen at all.... Is it water retention?

Thank you!

It is most likely water retention. As long as your blood pressure is normal and there is no protein in your urine, it is likely to be normal.

Best wishes
