  • My sister is 12 weeks right now and she is having the same problem. She went to the doctor for it, and they just told her its because of the "weight" change. They told her to soak her feet in warm water and use epson salt and to keep her feet elevated! Hope this helps

  • The pain is due to the changes in your hormones, and the swelling also plays a part in that too. Also you are gaining weight even tho your cloths may still fit fine, you are still gaining weight.
    When your feet start to swell try to sit down and put your feet up ( try to put them above your heart ).
    If the swelling doesn't go down after an hour or two call your doc and let her/him know. You might be retaining water, if so they might put you on a water pill. over all it just another wonderful thing that come along with that little sweetie brewin in there, haha. hope that helps!! Good luck and congrats!
