  • It's actually pretty common. Most women go up 1/2-1 size. I was mad, because I had just bought some cute, comfy, EXPENSIVE heels before I got pregnant, and I can't wear them anymore!
    The good news is, this usually only happens after the first pregnancy. (though I'm sure there are exceptions)
    Can you imagine Michelle Duggar's feet? =)

  • I did. My feet were swollen along with the rest of my body. I had to wait about 4 months before I could buy new shoes. Eventually the swelling went down and then my shoes were stretched out and too big.

  • You know now that I think about it, it did happen to me. I always wore a size 5 1/2 in womens shoes and now I wear a size 7 in womens. And it happened right after my 4th baby. I thought it was weird but I just went with it and was like whatever.

  • Mine went from a 7 1/2 to an 8 permanently after my third child. My mother started with a size 6. With each child her feet grew 1/2 size. She is now a 7 1/2.

  • It went up. I stayed swollen throughout my pregnancy. The shoes that used to fit me are too tight now!
