I'm curious when people's feet grew and by how much... Did they shrink back?<br><br>
I'm 30 weeks and my shoes are starting to get a little tight but still fit. This may be sweeling due to the weight and the heat rather than my bones stretching out. I'm trying to determine whether I'm out of the woods for any serious pregnancy-related foot growth. Or does that come later?

I never had any foot related issues with DD1's pg. My feet "grew" with DD2 right at the end of my pg, a good 1/2 size increase. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: It was a permanent change, totally sucked because of the cost aspect of buying all new shoes, and also now I'm in between sizes, which is a huge PIA. I would say you are out of the woods when the baby is born! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

mine grew about a 1/2 size with DD#1, and was a permanent change. I've not had any increase with my last 2 PG's

I was blessed with wide size 7 feet (Flinstone feet) before my first pregnancy. After the birth and the swelling went down, I wore a 7 1/2 (the width grew). After my second birth, they widened again to a size 8. Sigh!

My feet got bigger with the last pregnancy. And went back to the<br>
same size after. With this pregnancy my feet haven't grown at all.<br>
Thank God! I'm already wearing size 10!

I'm pregnant with my 4th, and haven't noticed any change in my feet throughout all my pregnancies. I have long narrow feet, size 9...dunno, but am glad to at least avoid that peculiarity of pregnancy!

I went up a 1/2 size with my first pregnancy and they never returned to the pre-pregnancy size.<br><br>
With every pregnancy I have swelling, but that IS temporary and goes away within a few days of birth.

My feet never changed sizes. Size 7 wide the entire time.

My feet never grew with my son and I never had any kind of swelling. Strangely, my wedding rings were loose almost the whole time, and I wasn't dehydrated either. I think I'm an alien. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
