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

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

    My shoe size post-pregnancy is about a full size larger than it was pre-pregnancy. I had heard of this possibility (but didn't think it would actually happen!)
    None of my shoes fit and I am considering having them stretched to try and salvage them. Has anyone had this problem and had their feet return to their original size? Should I wait it out or stretch them out?
    And, has anyone had their shoes stretched to fit (an entire size)? If so, where would you recommend I try?
    Thanks!

    I am now a full size larger than before I had a baby. If it helps, some of my shoes (that I didn't throw out bc there was no hope for them) 'just' fit. It seems to be a permanent thing, I'm sorry. I'm just as disappointed.

    I'm afraid mine didn't go back either, I'm about half a size bigger...

    Mine didn't go back, my feet are a size bigger now. I just gave away about 30 pairs of shoes.

    I think it depends on the individual, like stretch marks.

    Mine went back to their original size after about a year. I'm glad I didn't throw away all my shoes.

    I'd give it sometime (9 months to a year?) before throwing away your entire shoe collection. Then again, shoe shopping is so much fun..

    I kept hoping that my feet will go back to my pre-pregancy size, but still hasn't happened. Now after two babies in 3 years, I think it is hopeless. It's heartbreaking to get rid of all my Manolos...
