    We have proudly displayed our stretch marks, bumps and belly buttons. Now let's display our swollen feet.

    My feet have been exceptionally swollen for the last couple of days. Been drinkning lots of water, elevating them at all times, to no avail.

    First picture is of my feet/ankles on my wedding day - was 1 week pregnant.
    You can see just how slim my feet/ankles were.

    I opened the first pic from your wedding first - not having read the text - was wondering what your feet used to be like if you called them swollen!!! :rofl:

    I am only 28 weeks and think I outdo you on th swelling... :blush: Will try and get a pic posted in the next couple of days as well....

    My ''wedding'' feet and ankles

    https://i40.tinypic.com/2v119b4.jpg

    My really bad ''preggy'' swelling

    Toes like little thick sausages! and my ankles were almost impossible to bend with the fluid round them. ANd you can see the shine on them from where the skin is so tight.
    Luckily this was a one off and they arent like this at the mo!

    I can't be bothered to move to get the camera upstairs but my feet are like that too.
    I don't think there is any part of me that isn't swollen.

    I went to the store today and bought a pair of sandles an extra size larger than I usually take... called tender tooties...
    THEY are SOOOOOOOOOOO freaking comfortable. I had to put my slippers away cause they were cutting off my circulation.
    Best part, they were on sale and they are adjustable :>

    my feet were like that since i was 20 weeks pregnant, ppl used to say stuff about them, i felt silly. i couldnt walk properly and only had 1 pair of sandals that fit. now i have had jacob 4 weeks and they are still as bad! had to have blood tests to see if any reason why they are not going down!

    you girls have my complete sympathy :hugs:

    They dont look as bad as some of yours, but i usually have quite 'boney' feet

    Also had to take my engagement ring off coz it was hurting and digging in, skin feels hot and tight alot of the time
