At the moment I have cankles & swollen feet, & I was wondering has anybody else suffered & what you did to releave it. The only reason I ask is I have a confirmation on Sunday week and wanted to wear a dress that the hubby got me (otherwise it just goes to waste) & to 'look good also', so the feet are an issue. And no its not the kind of dress that boots would look good with cause i tried already. Thanks guys.

Sorry, not what you want to hear but not sure if there's anything you can do with them. Try sleeping with your feet up on a pillow/cushion, this mightn't get rid of the swelling but should reduce it somewhat. Also put your feet up during the day as much as possible.

Keep your feet up whenever sitting down, that's about it. Sorry!

Sorry Dunni, In my experience, the girls are right :o( I had this so bad the last time I never thought I would see my ankles again.. I couldn't believe they would ever come back to normal. I had my feet up when ever i could, I was drinking lots of water (a piece of advise I was also given), had reduced salty foods completely (another thing I was told), nothing worked. Except labour :o0 About 2 months after our baby was born my ankles (and toes :eek ) reappeared! I still think my ankles look really skinning now :o0 Anyways hopefully we're wrong and somebody out there has a great tip on how to help this .. :wv

Thanks guys, I'm watching them over the next few mornings hoping that I can at least wear the dress to the confirmation then change before lunch later that day - cheats way out but how bad.
