I am also having sock indentations. I have stopped wearing anything longer than ankle socks b/c it is so annoying to me! For the most part I am wearing loafers with no socks, and then at home wearing "slipper socks" that aren't tight.
I have been very lucky with all my pregnancies and have not ever had much swelling. The only thing I notice is later on in pregnancy my feet feel wider and I have a hard time wearing my ballet flats comfortably.
I never had any swelling whatsoever with DD even if I wore heels and was on my feet at work all day but this time it started last week. My ankles and feet got SO swollen. it doesn't seem to matter whether I stand or sit, but elevating in the evening brings it down for the morning. So terribly annoying.

Yep I am swelling already I am hoping it doesn't get too bad. I swelled a lot last pregnancy and I remember after I gave birth I woke up every night for like a week completely DRENCHED while my body got rid of it all. It was disgusting. There is a little TMI for your afternoon

My ankles usually swell from work, but my feet and hands have started swelling more, too. When we flew to california a few weeks ago, my ankles were horrible, my toes even hurt they swelled so much. I was starting to get worried (my sister had pre-e with her first and gained 100lbs in water weight). Luckily my appointment was two days after we got back. Everything is fine, of course, but holy swelling batman! After a few days of normal activity and being able to lay in bed a few extra hours, it's down to a normal amount, but it still stinks
