Dd was born in early August. I was swollen in hands and feet for a good 3 weeks at the end of that pregnancy and I think it was mostly heat related (maybe salt was an issue, but I didn't become aware of that until I started talking to my MW about this pregnancy). Anyway, the only things that helped are exactly what sarajane suggested: staying cool and keeping my feet elevated. With dd I was working full time, so I had to make good use of all my breaks for putting my feet up and having small snacks -- this came out about every 2-3 hours.
Now that I'm approaching week 36, I've begun to notice my feet swelling at work. So up they've been going when I can. I work part time, but I'm still here at least 6 hours, plus I have an hour commute each way so it's still a long day.
