  • Yes, just wait until you give birth. Those feet & ankles will put on 5 pounds of their own.

  • Let you doctor know. They will have information that will help, like cutting down on your salt intake.

  • Drink lots of water, try to keep your feet up. If it was a very sudden or excessive swelling, call your doctor. It could be a sign of preeclampsia or another problem.
