swollen sore feet

I'm 38 wks, with GD and incredibly swollen and sore feet.
My s/o is convinced that cranberry juice will help pee out some water retention, do you think it will help.
He's worried my kidneys are working overtime..

  • Yeah I've heard cranberry juice is good for swelling and to purify the kidneys. If your hands and face is puffy then you should probably talk to your doctor. Otherwise it's normal for feet to swell up when you're that far along especially if it's hot out.

  • I know you said you have GD but how has your blood pressure been running? Swollen feet can be a sign of high BP
