I am 37 weeks pregnant with swollen aching feet, calves and hands. Midwife says the level of swelling is to be expected. What can I do to make it feel better? I have tried raising feet and not doing too much but I also need to balance this with been active, nobody wants a back to back baby!

Have they checked your blood pressure? (I'm sure they have but that's the first thing they do w me)I am on constant watch for my bp! Nice warm baths?

Blood pressure is fine and I don't have protein in my urine. Baths seem to make it a little better but not much. I suspect it is just another one if those pregnancy things that I will just have to deal with smile

It is the tops of my feet that hurt the most. My ankles have been MIA for the last couple of weeks.

I will try and convince my husband to massag them. It is my first baby so I am thinking I still have a while left.
