Fat feet - help!

I need advice from the moms out there.

I don't have preeclampsia, but I have started swelling. It started small, but has been getting more significant. I took a plane ride yesterday and when I got home last night, my ankles and feet were so swollen I thought my feet were going to pop off. Thankfully, they didn't.

I'm still swollen this morning. I wouldn't care so much, except that I can't get my shoes on. And it's February in Seattle. I have some cute summer slide-on sandals that I was going to wear, but they go too far up my foot and I can't get them on. Well, I probably could if I forced it, but I think I would stretch them out and ruin them.

So, here I am, wearing my plastic Old Navy flip flops in FEBRUARY in Seattle. Burr! They are the only things I can get on my feet. But... umm... I do need to go to work for one more week and have appointments to go to (which involve going outside).

What do you do? Just wear flip-flops in February? Go get bigger sandals? Bigger shoes? Help!

By the way, baby girl is due in 30 days. Oh my gosh!

Yay! You are close!!!! First, I'd say especially after flying check with the nurse at your drs office just to be sure. Second, I'll tell you what they will tell you... DRINK DRINK DRINK!!! :-) And make that water...
If you can rest on your left side, do that too... All the stuff I'm sure you saw when you googled it, right? ;-)
As far as shoes... could you get some inexpensive slip on clogs or something??
