My left one looks like it belongs on Frankenstein! It was huge yesterday, fine this morning, and is swelling again. I'm not really worried b/c I read that toxemia symptoms include swollen feet, hands, and swelling around the eyes. Plus my ob said it was okay as long as the swelling went back down. I'm drinking water and am going to buy compression socks today.
mine certainly are puffier I was getting a pedicure earlier this week and noticed. I said something to the manicurist and she was like, :you're pregnant its normal". I told her I was only five months along and she said "they'll be huge!" Ugh so embarrassing!
I had some swelling a few weeks ago, especially after my 3 hour, twice a week classes, and after studying. Since then I've brought my laptop and textbook up to my room and spend a LOT of time just sitting on my bed. My feet aren't elevated or anything, but it still seems to have helped a ton. Maybe try sitting with your feet "up" as much as you can, as well as drinking water.

First surrobaby (girl) arrived April 24, 2008!
Surrotwins Hayleigh and Teagan arrived September 24, 2009!
I worked a 14 hour shift yesterday (on my feet almost the whole time) - my feet were ENORMOUS by the time I got home. The cool part was that DH gave me a long foot rub when I got home and my feet were back to normal size in about an hour. It was crazy to watch!
I feel like my shoes are getting tighter - but my feet aren't noticably swollen yet. They do hurt more though! I cleaned yesterday for about 2 hours, barefoot, and my feet were killing me last night. Guess I need to wear supportive shoes.
