Sore feet?


Anyone else have super sore feet? Like hurts to walk sore feet? I mean, my feet are really swollen, but they have been hurting like this for a couple months now, before they got swollen.

It's the bottoms of my feet that hurt, they feel all bruised all the time. Especially when I get up in the morning. I heard that your feet kind of "spread out" when you are pregnant, is this true? Is that why they hurt? And the top of my left foot hurts too, like it is bruised as well, but I think that might be from the swelling.

Anyone else with foot trouble? Gosh when you add the sore feet to the sciatica, I'm a mess, it's amazing I can still walk lol!

No kidding! I look at my feet and ankles and think, "these aren't my feet, where are my lovely shapely ankes and calves?" Good lord I hope my feet don't stay this way! I keep hearing from other ladies who end up a size bigger and they don't go back to normal! AAAAAAA!!!

Oh right I saw your picture, your poor feetsies! They haven't gone down at all?

A tip I learned from my massage lady is if you get your hubby (or whoever) to rub your legs from your feet upwards to the knees, it really helps to push some of that fluid back where it's supposed to go. It made a big difference for me, though it only lasted a few days, but it made my feet look nicer for the bridal shower I had to go to. So you massage and rub upwards.

I have a tattoo on my right foot, it is quite large and dark so it actually makes the swelling less noticeable on that foot lol!

hey, not even in this tri yet and saw this post, and have had the same for the last week or so, especially when i get out of bed during the night and in the morning. It's like a bruised ache that i get when i've been standing on my feet all day except, i've not been doing that kind of standing. They're not crazy puffed but when i wake in the night, the soles of my feet do seem puffy. At least i'm not the only one and it's def a preg thing!

It isn't just a third tri thing, I've had it since at least the middle of the second tri, I'd have to go back to my notes to check for sure. It sucks and it doesn't seem to go away, I guess we've got it until babies come!

I can SO relate! My husband wouldn't massage me either. I would say, "can you rub my feet?" and he would reply with "can you rub mine?" I mean COME ON! I even said I would rub his after, but no go.

So I decided that if he wasn't going to do it then I was just going to have to pay someone else to do it. You should go get a massage, it is such a nice treat for your poor feet! I asked her just to massage my legs and feet and it was heavenly. I can't wait to go back again. Definitely worth the $40 it cost.
Damn husbands!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, a foot massage. I'd be on

I've had achy feet since I was a child. Always waking up in the middle of the night screaming as my feet ached so much. Doctor said there was nothing wrong.

As I got older, the ache would go up to my hips, especially around PMS time.

Now, pregnancy has seemed to bring it out a lot, especially this time around. I'm almost in tears some nights and have to take a tylenol.
