Hardly any.  With my first baby my feet were so swollen I couldn't fit into any shoes and my feel looked and felt like bricks.  This time though I have been much better about keeping hydrated and I've only had mild swelling that comes and goes.

 No, and I'm wondering if I will ever get it....I'm 25wks, and so far have had zero swelling of any kind, well except for my boobs! lol

 my feet have been swelling like crazy, They look like the stay puff marshmallow man, anyone having any relief recommendations.  I have been keeping them up and drinking more water that I ever have.

yes...daily...worst at night. I still work and sit up so dont get alot of time with my feet up...Had been sent to hosp. 2 times for it but it kept checking out ok...I made them check me for preclampsia. My Dr told me its summer & your body is a thermometer and this is usually how it reacts....careful with salt. I happen to notice immediatley I start to spread out if I have something salty :0) oh and Im 31 weeks...keep your eye on it. anything you arent comfortable with of course get it checked...you know your body better

 This is me too. My feet get so swollen that they just hurt some days. I drink so much water and try to keep them up when I can, but nothing helps. I don't have any cure for it, sorry. I dealt with it with my first baby too (also a summer baby). I have only gained about 8lbs so far. and I joke that half of that is the baby, and the other half is in my feet. I will so glad to deliver and wait for the fluids to drain out of me. With my daughter, there were a couple days where I was in the bathroom every few minutes it seemed with the need to pee. But, my feet were back to normal after just a few days of giving birth. Such welcomed relief!
