  • Because you're pregnant? If it doesn't go away while you're sleeping, then it could be a sign of hypertension (high blood pressure).

  • If you aren't prego and you had a c-section,it could be from that. I got more swollen after my c-section than I ever was when I was prego. Something about it makes you retain water or something

  • if it has nothing to do with pregnancy, it may have to do with your diet. If you are eating alot of processed, salty foods and not drinking enough water.

  • um actually, it could have to do with pregnancy, TRUST ME. I had preeclampsia and my feet were sooo swollen and i didn't know it till i went to the doc and my blood pressure was wayyy higher than any other time in my pregnancy. they induced me THAT NIGHT! It's dangerous if you're preggo, call your doc
