I'm about 8 months pregnant and my feet have been swelling a bit for about a month. Until this week; now they just look like frikkin' BALLOONS!! I can barely bend my toes, my feet are semi-numb, and my left foot is a whole LOT worse than my right; it's even losing color. I had a dr appt yesterday and I mentioned it to the Dr (she's not my regular, as my midwife was delivering a baby), and she just said to wear some frikkin' pantyhose.... (I run around the house naked bc I stay so hot; why would I wear pantyhose?) But this is REALLY getting on my nerves... I have taken a couple doses of pain reliever and even soaked my feet in ICY water for awhile...nothing helps. I wake up like this, so laying down feet propped up doesn't help. Also, I've cut nearly ALL salt out...Nothing helps so far...
