  • You're feet are just swelling. Its a pretty common sympton of pregnancy. I would just try to wear comfortable shoes as much as possible.

  • My feet were so swollen near the end. I still have the pair I wore all of the time with my first pregnancy and they're a size larger than I normally wear and extremely stretched out!

  • When I was pregnant with my first kid , If I didn't put my shoes on ASAP I couldn't get them on, once I even had to go to work without. Swollen feet or very uncomfortable, I would drink more water, eat less salt, and keep my feet up. I don't think that wearing shoes will cause health problems, but if your too swollen you might want to ask your doc. about toxicity or toxoplasmosis I can't remember whar it is called.

  • My doctor told me that as long as both feet are swollen, it's fine. If only one is, to call immediately. Keeping your feet up helps.

  • some swelling is normal but if you just all of a sudden swell up badly then it could indicate a problem. I swelled up in like a few days. I had my blood pessure checked and a protein test and they found out I had pre-eclampsia If you think something is wrong, insist on them checking it out fo you. I knew something was wrong and It was hard getting them to listen
