    My feet swelled up to 2 sizes bigger, before I developed pre-eclampsia.  Not sure yet if they’ll go all the way back down…they’re still a full size larger than normal.

    My feet went up a shoe size bigger and I had to stay in flats the last months of my pregnancy. I was told by the dr it can take up to a year for your body to get back to normal! I am hoping that one day I can wear all my beautiful heels again! If not Fiance knows I am ready to go shopping on him of course. 🙂

    My daughter is almost three years old, and I had to trow out my shoes a few months after she was born, when I realized my feet stayed as big as they were during my pregnancy.

    I was a 7 – 7 1/2, now I´m an 8   : S

    I had borderline pre-e with the twins, and my feet were so swollen they looked like Hobbit feet and you could mold them like clay. I had to wear my husband’s shoes unlaced, and had to wear men’s sport socks cut at the ankle (the “tight” part was way too tight).

    They didn’t swell during my second pregnancy.

    They’re the same size they were pre-pregnancy. Now, my jeans…

    I said other because it’s not me, it’s my sister, and she just had her baby this morning (yay!) but yes, her feet went up a full size!

    My feet went you almost a size and a half…and yep…they stayed that way!! I thought it was a myth but alas it turned out to be all too true. I had to buy all new shoes.

    Oh, I forgot to say I had no swelling at all, I really tried to watch my sodium specially on the last month and they only got a bit swollen on my baby shower, so I don´t think swelling is related to it … they just get bigger : (

    Not me personally, as I do not have children, but my mother said that her’s grew a half size with each of her 3 pregnancies.

    @daniela…same here. I had a textbook pregnancy. No morning sickness, no swelling, gained almost 25 pounds on the nose…my feet still got bigger. I was NOT a happy mama.

    ugh… don´t start with the nose or I might quit on having two more babies. The pain during labor (no epidural) was fine, but that nose… THAT NOSE… it will hunt you on pictures for ever!

    Mine went down a half size. . . but I hear I’m super odd.  All the women in my family went up a quarter to half size with each baby.  Before I got pregnant I wore mostly an 8, occasionally a 7.5.  Now I’m always a 7.5 and sometimes a 7.
