Imprints left behind: It sounds like you are retaining fluid. If you have a 4 month old and your breast feeding I'm sure there are days when you've retained fluid. Normally older patients will show you the lines around their ankles where the socks have left a groove.. You are too young to have experienced this great joy! You should check with your ob/gym They can check BP, kidney function and watch your salt intake.
