    I'm 38+5 and lately swelling has been getting worse. It's on and off... Today looks fine but this was Monday...

    I'm at mw's this afternoon so I will mention it but my blood pressure has always been fine so not worried?

    Anyone else got hulk feet?? Xx

    I get one monster foot! This has been on and off since about 25 weeks and all checks have been fine so far (im 35+5 now). I had an injury to my foot 15 year ago so apparently that doesnt help. One fat foot with sausage toes lol

    Yep I'm pretty badly swollen, hands and feet. Only thing that helps is putting them up, on like 3 cushions. And cold flannels help. My mum keeps suggesting an ice pack but not tried that yet x

    Oh you poor thing!! I thought my feet had got a bit puffy in the heat, but nothing even close to that!! In fact my mum reckons my feet and ankles are still getting skinnier!! Which is ridiculous!!

    Drink plenty, even suck ice cubes and keep your feet up!!

    I've been soaking socks in cold water that's been helping and also bought some of that cussons spray... Not sure if that's doing anything but it is making my feet smell lovely! Lol
    That's prob the worse they have been, it's a bad photo, not always as bad as that.
    I keep switching between feet up on my ball and bouncing on my ball lol xx
