Supposly you only sweel up if you eat alot of salt or something has too much salt

Mine didn't swell till 37 weeks so don't count your chickens before they hatch lol almost all women's feet swell even if only a little

I am 37 weeks and i only suffer from swelling feet when ive eaten too much salt which is rare since i make a concious effort to stay away from salt. However i have noticed as the days go by they do swell much quicker even with out eating salt or being on them a while lot. Sometimes its just the pressure of the baby in your pelvic area that puts more strain on your hips and knees causing legs ans feet

My feet didn't swell last time, and so far nothing this time. My moms feet swelled so bad with each pregnancy, she grew a half a shoe size!

I have cut back on my salt b/c that will cause it. But mine swell a little if I'm on my feet all day.
