Swollen feet are no fun during pregnancy , especially in the summer . Try and put them up as much as you can , that will help a lot with the swelling . Make sure you are getting enough fluids , thats important also . It is nice to soak your feet in nice cool water, it help with the swelling and it helps when your feet are tired and sore .

The only thing that helped me was to put my feet up. I have to have extra pillows in bed just for my feet when I'm pregnant.

Swollen feet are very common during the third trimester. I never got swollen feet during my first pregnancy but I did all the rest of my pregnancies. I remember my feet being the worst with my third pregnancy. It took about a month after I had him for my feet to be skinny again. It was such a relief! It only took a couple of weeks after my fourth to get skinny feet again. Not a lot you really can do about it besides propping your feet up and taking it easy. Also lots of water may help. Just don't stress about it because before you know it your feet will be back to normal after birth.
