Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Run down to walmart and indulge in one of those foot baths with jets and the works! If you can't splurge like that a warm bath water (not to hot because you don't want to raise your body temp) and little epsom salt. Soak for a while and try and relaz. When done soaking (10-15 minutes) sit back and relax with your feet propped. The mix between all that helped me out alot as my feet started to get little swollen. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids too!
