Swollen feet since delivery

So, I delivered my little bundle of joy last Friday.

My question is regarding my feet. They have been EXTREMELY swollen since the delivery.
Does anyone have an idea what this is from?...and if I should be concerned?

  • Just leftover fluids from the pregnancy. It will take a week or two to go down. Drink lots of water and try eating some cucumber, it's a natural diuretic.

  • My feet were NEVER swollen UNTIL i gave birth, the IV was the culprit! It will go away in about 5 more days . CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • yup, my feet swelled up like balloons after delivery as well. it's from all the fluids. mine took about 2 weeks to go down. during those 2 weeks they just get getting worse and worse until they finally deflated! congrats to you on your new bundle of joy!!!
