I am 5ft tall, weight 122.  I am a stay at home mom with two boys, 10yrs and 15 months.  the only medication i am on is a progesterone only birth control pill since i am still breastfeeding.  I can't say that I exercise all that much, but i am on my feet most of the time around the house.  I am just really puzzled by my ankle, since i am in pretty good health as far as I know.

Pain in any part of our body is a signal to us to pay attention. You may have stepped in an awkward way without realizing, preoccupied with the baby as you are. The signal is to pay attention to your own well-being. Exercise, lie down with your feet higher than your head, several times a day for 10 minutes or so. For the swelling put on cold presses while resting with your feet up. Your body is still in a great flux, since you are breast feeding. Beside the minor ankle injury, it could be a symptom of internal state, and you should definitely see a doctor for it, if the swelling does not go down within few days. Take care of yourself.
