Like you, I'm terrified of my feet growing. I wear a 9.5 normally and I am already wearing 10's right now due to swelling. Last pregnancy, my feet actually went down from a 10 to a 9/9.5. I found that staying off my feet as much as possible and elevating them in the evenings helped a lot. I have also heard that excessive weight gain can sometimes contribute to growing feet (because the extra weight puts more pressure on the loosened joints and causes them to spread). Not sure how true that is. Either way, I'm seriously hoping that my feet don't grow. I am already embarrassed by my shoe size and don't want to go any bigger. (Not to mention all my cute shoes that would have to be tossed aside...)
