    My MW said that it gets worse initially after giving birth but then goes quite quickly. She had better not be lying coz I'm sick of having feet n ankles like balloons grrrrr.

    I think my swelling had totally gone within about a week of giving birth. I found it a right nightmare walking downstairs with my big puffy feet!!
