  • My feet didn't start getting swollen till near the end with my first. I'm 26w pregnant now and they're not swollen. Maybe you have bigger issues? Too much salt intake? GD? I'm not sure mama. You need to talk to your OB because being swollen that soon doesn't seem right.

  • I talked to them about it and I went in to an earlier appointment and all the test ran came back normal... So not sure why it is happening

  • I got pretty bloated too. I wore flip flops and bedroom slippers for months. My feet were back to normal by the time I got home from the hospital.

  • I actually couldn't wear my regular shoes. My foot size got larger during pregnancy. But that changed again, after pregnancy.

  • Try elevating your feet when possible. I put mine in a foot bath with hot water and that helped mine feel tons better.

  • Elevate your feet and try to relax more if your on your feet a lot.
