I didn’t read the other suggestions, but I suggest skipping the heels for more comfortable shoes.  My ankles swelled at first, and then my feet swelled.  I delivered two weeks ago and just noticed that I finally have my ankles and feet back.  It feels so nice, so know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

At 31 wks, with that much swelling, I definitely would’ve caved and bought a new pair of flats. The ones you bought look perfect for what you need them for. 

OH- and good to know to expect it to last 2 wks past delivery. I just started swelling, not that bad, but still, most of my shoes don’t fit anymore. I can’t bring myself to buy new shoes when I could deliver any day now that I’m at full-term. But if we’re talking another 2 wks on top of that, and it’s not really flip flop weather anymore…hmm..

I don’t have much advice, but I can relate. My feet were like big dinosaur feet and by the last couple months of my pregnancy, there was literally NOTHING I could do anymore to keep the swelling down. Not even elevating them helped anymore and I tried to sleep with them up all night.

I’m sure your Dr has checked you for Toxemia? Keep your salt down as much as possible as that will help a little bit with water retention. There’s hidden salts in everything.

Here’s a pic of my feet from when I was pregnant; I could press on them and leave an indent too. They got skinny again after I had the baby and I lost almost 30 pounds after giving birth because of all the water retention. Took about a week after having him for the swelling to go down completely. I was surprised to see the bones in my ankles/toes again. lol 

Literally just try not to be on your feet if at all possible, and keep them elevated whenever you can. GL.
