The most important thing here is to make sure you are not suffering from high blood pressure, and this is something you must check with your gynae, and I am sure he\she is monitoring this. For the rest swollen feet are par for the course I am afraid, wear comfortable shoes that support your feet, make sure you are not having too much sodium in your diet, but speak to your gynae, this is not uncommon
