Keep forgetting to post this - part of my experience of labour and might be a useful tip to others.
My feet swelled up and couldn't fit into any shoes when I was going home. Maybe have some sort of flip flops and quite open shoes ready for your trip in case it happens to you. I asked the midwife in the hospital and she said it was from the labour!!!!!
my legs looked like tree trunks
