I'm almost 29 weeks pregnant and for the past couple weeks my feet just seem to be swollen all the time! They're really puffy and sore and it's starting to become really uncomfortable to wear most of my shoes... Any suggestions on what to do to decrease swelling or make them feel better? Thanks

When I was pregnant with my daughter I had to go up 1 shoe size. I'm currently around 22 weeks pregnant and am having some swelling too. Elevating the legs does help and of course avoiding salty foods does too. I had my husband rub my feet most eveings which felt really good. I'm looking forward to that part again! :)

Keep them raised where possible and foot rubs always help mine to at least stop aching so much. Also soaking them in a bowl of cool water is lovely and refreshing.
