Will my feet ever return to their pre-pregnancy size?

    I must be weird, my shoe size didn't change at all - except for about 2 weeks of swollen feet when I was pregnant.

    Thanks for the responses...I will keep hoping that they return to their previous size, but won't hold my breath. Anyone have a suggestion for a cobbler who can stretch shoes (about a full size)?
    Thanks again!

    Oh, this confirms so much. My feet are bigger now too. My fingers are finally starting to get smaller but I think that there is no hope for my wedding band so I'll likely have to have that re-sized. As it has been already nearly two years I'm not bettin' on my shoe size going back down either so I'd better look for a place to donate those shoes. But hey, the bright side is that now I can have an excuse to buy new shoes! Yay!

    Why it Happens:

    I was curious about why post-pregnancy shoe sizes can be bigger than pre-pregnancy and apparently it's all the fault of the hormone relaxin which loosens up your ligaments before birth but they also can cause fallen arches and basically flattens out and elongates your feet. According to the article I read, this happens to 1/2 to 3/4 of all pregnant women.

    The article I read is here: Why do your feet get bigger during pregnancy? | Everything you always wanted to know about pregnancy but were afraid to ask

    My feet definitely went up a size, but it was mainly in terms of width. I took my shoes that I just couldn't bear to part with to the lanes between central station and pedder building and had them stretched. It helped a lot and I can wear most of the nicer ones for an night out with a bit of suffering towards the end...
