  • Its normal. Its b/c of the heat they are swollen. Poor thing, you have all summer to go pregnant. Your hands, face, ect. will become swollen too. Best bet for you feet is to drink lots of water & keep them propped up. With my 1st pregnancy, mine were so swollen all the time, I couldn't wear anything but flip flops and I couldn't even fit my rings. GL!

  • Yep. It's called edema. Keep drinking lots of water.

  • drink lots of water, watch your sodium intake (no canned veggies...use fresh or frozen...and no fast food!), then rest lying down on back with legs and feet elevated above level of body....
