I don't know if Edema (swollen feet/ankles) was/is an issue for you during your pregnancy but I came across a good resource explaining what it is and how to treat it. Edema During Pregnancy (Swollen Ankles and Feet)

Has this been an issue for you and what did you do to alleviate it?

My ankles & feet were terribly swollen the last month of my first pregnancy. I am on my feet all day at work and as the day went on, my feet got bigger and bigger. I drank tons of water, put them up as much as I could, and wore comfy shoes. I was lucky, though, because when I woke up every morning, they were much smaller than when I went to bed. They kind of....reset.

I started swelling my 2nd trimester and it sucks! Not just my feet and ankles but my hands and legs would swell too. Lately, every morning I wake up and my hands are so swollen I can't bend my fingers. Once I'm up and about that swelling goes down a little. My feet swell so much I can't put on regular shoes (I've been wearing flip-flops). Really the only ways I've found that have helped me is elevation and compression. When my legs/ankles/feet get real bad I wrap them in ACE bandages and raise them up on pillows for a while. Just another thing I had to learn to deal with, you know? It's all worth it for my little girl though.
