citysparkle : My fee haven’t grown, though quite a few people warned me of this. For stretch marks I’ve been slapping on almond oil daily, and touch wood so far I haven’t got any, hopefully it stays that way.

indiblue :  I had minimal swelling, and the little swelling I had was 35+ weeks, but it was also August and very hot. I had a lot of swelling after birth, which is common. I had zero stretch marks until after birth as well, but those went away. I really was only tired as well.

citysparkle :  Mine did due to swelling, but they went back to normal after delivery!

indiblue :  Hi, friend! My feet and ankles started to swell a bit throughout the day starting around 34 weeks, I think. They would go down some during the night, then repeat the next day. But it was June and pretty hot (we don’t have AC, either). It was just my lower body, though, my hands were normal and I never had to take my rings off! I got super swollen after delivery and then a few days later I starting peeing and sweating like crazy and lost a ton of water weight, it was crazy.

I still need to drag my butt to Nordstrom and try on shoes to know what my new size is, but yes, my feet grew in length and width and the only shoes that still fit me are comfort shoes designed with tons of give, like my sanuk yoga mat sandals, ugg boots, and arcopedico L8 booties (and even the L8s are a little snug). I have tons of pretty shoes that no longer fit.

I can’t say for sure when it happened… my feet and ankles started swelling around week 28, got HUGE by week 34… must have happened sometime in there.

Mine grew a little I think, but my old shoes still fit.

I started getting swelling around maybe week 36 but it wasn’t terrible. After I delivered was the worst because I had so much fluid pumped into me with the pitocin.

My feet swelled and I couldn’t wear all of my shoes towards the end and shortly after birth but they went back to normal.

MrsAKSkier :   Kay1126 :  I’m trying to avoid feeling like I’m “home free” — everyone is saying “just you wait!!” Even my prenatal masseuse yesterday told me after the next two weeks things will get rough! Good to hear about your experiences so thank you for sharing!

citysparkle :  I had a rough first trimester and no appetite all pregnancy but honestly I otherwise feel normal… Just tired and with a bump! I feel very lucky and am grateful whatever lies ahead for the next 7 weeks hasn’t hit yet.

My feet grew in the first trimester (currently in 2nd).  I had to go up 1/2 of size because they got longer.

My feet might have gotten slightly wider or maybe just from the weight gain. A half size up is more comfortable but still slightly too big…but I like my shoes snug.

I had no stretch marks until 36 weeks, then they came like crazy. I didn’t have any stretch marks on my breasts until my milk came in, about five days after birth. My ring didn’t fit during the last tri since I gained 40 pounds and I couldn’t wear it for 5 months after birth.
