Postpartum Foot Pain – What Helped Me

Morning guys! This is something I’ve been wanting to blog about for quite some time now. It’s kind of a weird subject but I want to write about it in case anyone else out there is googling it right now trying to find answers like I was a few months ago. Basically I want to talk about postpartum foot pain. I had no idea that was even a thing until I started experiencing it! I didn’t have it with my daughter Molly, but after I had my son Riley, I started getting terrible foot pain. It usually started a few hours after I’d wake up. I would only be on my feet for 10 minutes and it would feel like I was on my feet for 8 hours.

When I first noticed the pain I immediately started doing research online. The majority of what I’ve read said that women who experience foot pain after pregnancy usually feel it first thing in the morning when getting out of bed. But that wasn’t the case with me. I honestly didn’t feel it when I got out of bed and instead I would feel it after a few hours of the day went by. So to be completely honest with you guys, I haven’t really found anything in my research online about women who experience postpartum foot pain a few hours into the day. So that’s another big reason I wanted to write this. I couldn’t find anything about it online so I want other women who are experiencing this who Google “postpartum foot pain” to hopefully find my blog and get some sort information.

The reason I’m hoping those women find this blog post is because I want them to know that it went away for me! It lasted until Riley was about 4 months old. But those four months were very worrying to me! I remember thinking at multiple points that I should go to an orthopedic shoe store and buy orthopedic shoes. And no offense to people who wear those shoes, but they’re really not cute! Like not cute at all! At least not any of the pairs that I found. So I was getting a little down thinking that I was going to have to wear orthopedic shoes for the rest of my life. Truly the pain got so bad at one point that it made me worried that I would never be able to wear heels again! Is that the worst problem in the world? Well no. Of course it’s not. But you guys know that I like to wear heels sometimes and get dressed up. And I just would’ve been bummed out to not be able to do that anymore. But again, there are a lot worse things in the world. My point is, the thought of having to wear orthopedic shoes for the rest of my life at only 34 year old just didn’t feel right to me. And luckily, the pain did eventually go away so I’m right back in my heels! Ha! Well, comfy ones some of the time. Let’s face it, I’m a flats girl.

Anyway, I also wanted to share what helped me with the foot pain. Or at least I think I did. While I was googling things that could help with postpartum foot pain, I came across something that said taking vitamin D and calcium can help your joints and therefore help with the pain. You have to take vitamin D and calcium together because your body won’t absorb vitamin D without the calcium. So I thought I might as well give it a try since I would have nothing to lose. And honestly, within a week of taking those supplements my foot pain started to get better. And within a few weeks it was pretty much gone. Coincidence? Maybe. I don’t really know. But if any of you out there reading this are experiencing the same foot pain, it’s worth trying. But I’m not a doctor so definitely consult with your OB/GYN before trying it yourself.

I guess it hasn’t completely gone away. I still feel like my feet hurt after standing for a while and they didn’t in the past, but I also think that could be a part of getting older. For the most part, I am pain free. Just some aches here and there.

Well, I wanted to write this in hopes that it helps someone out there who experienced or is experiencing the same thing that I did. This blog post certainly won’t pertain to everyone reading it right now, but even if it helps just one person, I’m happy I wrote it. Thanks for reading guys! Love ya!

P.S. My dress in these pics is 40% off right now. Just thought I’d let ya know!

  1. Hi Ali! I have a 7 week old, and haven’t experienced foot pain but definitely back pain! Maybe from labor, or maybe from holding my little girl all the time! Haha. Thanks for sharing your pain and pain management story. We women are powerful and strong – and postpartum is filled with so many surprises. Xo

    1. I had bad back pain after baby 3. Ligaplex 2 and glucosamine from standard process helped me. Chiropractor. PT and major core strengthening. It was my low back. Hope yours is better soon!

  2. I had foot pain too and just lived with it for over a year. It was the worst getting up to care for my baby at night. Finally I mentioned it to my husband and in laws. They recommended insoles from Dicks Sporting Goods for planters fasciitis. They were like $20 and labeled for planters fasciitis. I wore them for a a couple weeks to a month and have been pain free. I don’t wear them much anymore, unless I wear the shoes they are currently sitting in. 🙂

    1. I have this too! My son just turned a year and it’s lessened but I still get it. It is mostly when I’m getting up to feed him or comfort him in the night and it feels like i ran a marathon! So happy to know I’m not alone!

  3. So weird what we go through! I stopped breastfeeding over a year and a half ago and I still produce milk. Not a lot but enough I can still leave marks on my shirt 😔 Hoping this stops soon just like your foot pain!

  4. So I had the same thing after I was pregnant with my son, my massage therapist said it was plantar fasciitis. It can happen with quick weight gain or extra weight …. all things preggos go through! Once I figured that out doing the excercises recommended were a life saver!! Look it up and hopefully it helps 🙂

    1. As a Phsyical Therapist, you are absolutely correct! Stretching your gastrocs ( calf muscle ) helps alleviate pain as well!

  5. Crazy how many things can happen post-partum and of course during pregnancy. But foot pain sounds very painful especially since you have to be up on your feet for work, being a mom and just in general! Glad you’re feeling better. I don’t have foot pain, but I’m gunna ask my dr about the vitamin d and calcium for my joint pain. Couldn’t hurt to ask, right? So thanks for suggesting!

  6. Yes! I got this with both of my kids and it hurt so bad! It was hard to find anything about it. Mine eventually went away too. This time around I also got hip and knee pain that lasted longer and I’m seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist who is helping me retrain my pelvic floor and deep abs. I guess having kids back to back made my brain forget how to connect to some of my muscles lol. The humans body is weird.

  7. Yes!!! When I would roll my feet I would feel the pain on the top of my feet. It wa sin both and I’ve noticed it going away a little more each month. I swear I was afraid something was broken in both feet!!

  8. Oh my goodness I did too! I didn’t after my first, like you. I remember the first time i got out of bed I had a searing pain shoot through the bottom of my one foot. It felt like a knot! It finally went away after about two weeks. Crazy the things that can happen after labor!

  9. Yes!!!
    I gave birth a week ago and my feet hurt really bad. I can’t wear flip flops at all because the pain also hurt between my toes.
    This is my second baby and having the paon now reminds me I also had it last time…so many things are happening at once that once the pain was gone I forgot about it!
    I was so happy to see you wrote about it it’s easier knowing that I’m not the only one!

  10. I had really bad foot pain during pregnancy and after.. I have a feeling it’s plantar fasciitis. I hope yours gets better, I still have mine and my baby girl is 3 weeks old.

  11. It is so weird to be reading this. I also had (have) foot pain in my left foot. Though it was very intense the weeks after birth it’s still very much there… Almost 2 years later! I knew it had to have something to do with post partum/pregnancy because it was the only thing that had changed…and I knew it wasn’t injury. So nice to read that I’m not crazy in my thinking that it is in fact a post partum issue.

  12. Oh my gosh I had the same thing! Mine was really bad first thing in the morning. I was so stiff and sore I could barely walk. I did also have it throughout the day. It’s finally better now at 7 months postpartum. And I also had wrist pain! I googled both things like crazy. 😬 I honestly felt worse postpartum then I did while pregnant. And it lasted for months. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Hi Ali! Sorry to hear about your foot pain. I have experienced the same thing! It started while I was pregnant which was kind of expected but I still have it now and I am 9 weeks post partum. I have always been very active and I can be on my feet for an hour or so and my feet are dying! You are not alone! Thanks for writing this post!

  14. I totally experienced postpartum foot pain but never found information so I just thought it was just me! Mine was any time I was off my feet longer than 5 min, when I would stand back up it was like I was 80 years old! It did eventually stop for me but it took longer than 4 months. I didn’t take the Vitamin D and calcium but I have been outside more, exposed to more Vitamin D so I wonder if that’s the connection! Thanks for all your blogs! Being a working mom is tough but it does always help when someone else can help normalize your experiences!

  15. Ali! I’m so glad you wrote about this, because I tought something was wrong with my foot!! My baby girl is 4 months and when I was reading your story, it suddendly hit me that the pain is not as bad as it was. But what a crazy feeling…
    Also started smiling when you explained why you have your subtitles. I’m so glad with them, cause when I’m wide awake at night (why is that anyways when baby is sleeping🤷🏽‍♀️) I can follow along😄👍🏼
    Thank you for sharing😘

    1. For those that experience postpartum pain, it is very hard to deal with while caring for a newborn, especially if you have one or more older children too. I take it you’ve never experienced this or you wouldn’t make light of it.

      1. What was your pain like though? I was hoping to hear details so I could relate mine – the pain I have is on the top
        Of my left foot very tender hard to walk but I even have a small bruise on the top of my foot without any known trauma

    2. Foot pain can be debilitating. I know because I’ve had it for various reasons and it has literally stopped me in my tracks. It’s not something to make fun of or take lightly. Be kind. We can and should all support each other.

  16. I’m 5 weeks postpartum and the foot pain started at four weeks for me. It was so sever at times I could barely walk and my foot feels numb, sort of like the pins and needles when your foot “falls asleep”. My OB said it could be nerve damage from the epidural. Resting it and wearing sneakers seem to be the only thing that helps!

    1. I’m currently suffering from this foot pain as well 5 months postpartum but no epidural. So strange that they don’t have an answer to this. I can hardly walk after waking or sitting long periods of time.

  17. There are lots of fascinating studies about how back-to-back pregnancies and periods of lactation can deplete even a healthy mom of nutrients very quickly. You have been either pregnant or nursing for over 3 years and your body has given up so many nutrients to your babies. It makes sense that this would manifest itself as bone pain and that supplementing with vitamins and calcium helped fix it.

    As a society, we need to do a better job educating ourselves about pregnancy spacing and the impact it has on our health and the health of our children. Seriously, there is so much research about this at our fingertips yet we ignore it in favor of society’s view of the “ideal” two-year spacing. I understand that older mothers may need to space pregnancies closer in order to even have multiple children, but we should at least be cognizant about the impacts on our health.

  18. Hey I have this pain over the years by mine for vitamin D deficiency also I have a baby and breastfeed can depletes more the vitamin make sure has K2 if not can cause ti much accumulation of calcium the brand the I use is Thorne thry are drops vitamin amin d3 with k2 I hope it helps.

  19. I had terrible pain only in my left foot for about six months after the birth of my second daughter. I didn’t experience this after my first but I attribute it to all of the clenching my body went through this time giving birth without an epidural. Thankfully it is completely gone now. My back/pelvic joint pain not so much though…sigh.

  20. I’m so glad you posted about this. While I have not had the foot pain you’ve described, I’ve had random face and lip swelling postpartum that started about 10 weeks after having my first and only child. 7 weeks later, and I’m still experiencing this and have been to an allergist to see if it’s something I eat or something in products I used but they found nothing. It starts out with itching earlier in the day in random parts of my body and sure enough that night in the middle of the night or when I wake up in the morning, the swelling in my face or lip starts again. Taking Zyrtec helps but it is so frustrating that I haven’t been able to pin this down. Has anyone else experienced this post partum? I can’t find anything to make the link online to pregnancy or breastfeeding so I’m going to a dermatologist next and my family doctor.

    PS – I love your posts and am obsessed with all your outfits!

    1. I have encountered something similar. A few weeks after birth I started itching uncontrollably in different areas of my body (not hives and not visible unless I scratched myself raw) and also had a few patches of eczema on my face etc that a dermatologist prescribed me creams for. The creams would help temporarily but the irritation would keep coming back. A few months ago I had lip swelling, itching, peeling.. it was terrible.. so I got another ointment for that. My derm said that skin issues are common while breastfeeding since you are always dehydrated even if you drink a ton of water. Anyway.. I never got to the real route of the problem and 4 months later am still dealing with these symptoms though they have improved. My obgyn semi-joked that maybe I’m allergic to breastfeeding. I did not experience this with my first so was definitely taken off guard. Good luck and please share if you learn more about reason for symptoms.

  21. I am not a mom, but I was in orthotic shoes before age 30 thanks to a stress fracture in my left foot and plantar fasciaitis! Icing is actually very helpful (stand on a bag of frozen veggies/fruit while eating your breakfast or doing the dishes) and before an exercise class, I lay on my back with my legs in the air and practicing flexing and straightening my feet- it seriously helps!

    Lastly, try Vionic shoes (https://www.vionicshoes.com/) if you need some with some extra arch support- they are getting cuter! (I had to do Dansko clogs for like 4 months and those are hard to dress up!) Good luck, Ali! I love you and your sweet family and all that you share about your very normal life 🙂

  22. Totally can relate! With my daughter Cora (she just turned three) I would wake up and get out of bed and the second I put pressure on my left foot, I had an intense throbbing pain running up my big toe?!?! If that makes sense, so weird, I know! It eventually went away and I didn’t have it with my son Cade (he’s almost 6 months and no pain!). I would complain and my husband would look st me like I was nuts, hah. It eventually subsided, hang in there mama! 🙂

  23. Yes, yes, yes to this post Ali! I experienced it with my first and now still going with my 2nd who has just turned 4 months old. I get it first thing in the morning but also anytime I’ve sat for longer periods & then just at any point it’ll come too. Thank you SO much for sharing this! This dress too, it’s so gorgeous, you gave the best style, Ali!

  24. Get your thyroid checked!!! I had excruciating joint pain (feet, ankles, knees and wrists) after having my daughter and doctors couldn’t figure out why. I finally asked to have my thyroid checked and found I had postpartum hyperthyroidism which was causing painful inflammation in my joints. I was on oral medication for about 6 months then my thyroid stabilized. Definitely worth getting checked! The fix was so easy!

  25. YES!!!! I’m happy you wrote this because I experienced the same thing. I did exercises that were supposed to help with plantar fasciitis and that helped me a ton, like rolling a tennis ball under my feet. Anyway, mine finally went away as well thank goodness! It is refreshing to know how many other women experienced this as well.

  26. OMG! Yes I am 4 months PP and have been having this and didn’t even really think twice about it. My husband thought it was maybe because I didn’t walk around as much as before now that I have a newborn and do lots of sitting/nursing/etc. (Eye roll). I thought maybe it was because the shoes I typically wear to work are a bit older. But this is crazy! It’s a real thing!

  27. Thanks for the tip about vitamins, definitely gonna try that! I have a 4 month old and have had really weak ankles since he was born…so weird. I feel it first thing in the morning or when I get up at night to feed/change him. I wonder if it has anything to do with the epidural?? 🤷🏼‍♀️

  28. I agree with another comment I read about plantar fasciitis. I got it last year months after I had my second baby, just out of nowhere, so I just bought Vionic brand shoes off QVC, along with another brand that I can’t think of , and that worked for me and the pain is gone.

  29. I understand that google and sharing can be helpful, however, if one has pain, contact a medical professional. My doctor told me to stay off the internet b/c self diagnosis is rarely correct. I am only reminding everyone that pain can be a sign of a serious condition that requires professional treatment.

  30. Mine was really really bad once I stopped breastfeeding my son, definitely had to do with hormones adjusting and once everything leveled out and I got my cycle back the foot pain went away! I feel like everything weird during pregnancy, postpartum, and breastfeeding feels so much worse because of sleep deprivation!

  31. I thought that I was the only one with foot pain after giving birth. In the beginning I just thought it was because my whole body took a toll while giving birth but then the foot pain persisted. Still to this day, my girl is 9 months, in the morning my heels hurt. It’s awful. I researched it and basically found “weight gain can cause foot pain”. One, no woman wants to be reminded of “weight gain” and two, I wanted more info than that explanation! The only relief I have when it flares up is wearing my husbands crocs that he wears around the house. Lol. Thank you for the Calcium and vitamin D…I will definitely have to look into trying this! Thanks!

  32. Read other people comments and was just curious what the pain felt like. Was it sharp, burning, constant, intermittent? I know you said it felt like you had been on your feet all day and I agree with the other comments that it sounds like plantar fasciitis. I would definitely mention this to your Primary Care Provider and see what they suggest for you. I bought a pair of Asic’s for errands/running/gym and they have changed my life. So glad this has already gotten better for you and hopefully it stays away! 🙂

  33. Omg!! I experienced this! I went to see my doctor as I had such a hard time walking, and when waking up in the middle of the night to feed the baby I was limping around. I got an X ray and nothing showed up. I figured I injured it during delivery, but maybe it was post partum foot pain!

    So interesting!! Haha

  34. Oh my goodness I’m so glad I’m not the only one, ladies! My heel has been hurting like crazy since having my baby 4 months ago. I feel like I can’t walk right 🙁 Love these tips- hoping on of them helps!! Thanks for sharing!

  35. Yes! I know exactly what you mean! I had this after both my boys and everytime I mentioned to my practitioners they’d say ‘that’s strange’. My best guess was that when your home most days, your walking on hardwood floor with no shoes for hours.

  36. Ali..I have had foot pain also, but not sure it was because I was pregnant. Acupuncture has helped me tremendously!! It was a last resort…and it worked! It makes my feet feel amazing, like its breathing new life into them!!

    MJ

  37. I haven’t had children, but I do have plantars fasciitis and it flares up when my hips are tight. I wonder if the stress of pregnancy/labor/carrying little ones around on your hips/back/legs caused something similar. I mentioned it to my doc and was able to do PT which really helped – at one point it was excruciating just to drive! Glad it’s feeling better, but for other people who are experiencing this- ask your doctor!!

  38. Omg! This is me! I have been googling like crazy about this! My feet have Been hurting so bad and I am about 4 months post partum and it’s starting to get better, but I have been driving myself crazy searching for answers!!

  39. I was JUST googling this! How weird! I’ve been having terrible foot cramping since I had my baby a month ago, and I am drinking 128 ounces of water a day, so I know it’s not dehydration! Thanks for posting this- definitely going to try vitamin d!

  40. Yes, I started noticing my arches were a little collapsed since I gave birth….not only do my my feet hurt, but I have such bad knee pain- it’s unbelievable. I’m 3 months postpartum, breastfeeding, and the knee pain has progressively gotten worse since my last few weeks of pregnancy. It’s so difficult walking up and down the stairs with my daughter! And so hard getting up/getting down on the floor to play with my daughter/tummy time. I feel like I’m 60! I just started wearing my Birkenstocks around the house for foot support, I’m hoping this will help. I will definitely try the calcium/vitamin D/K2, and make an appointment with my foot dr.!

  41. You are so fortunate that you can self diagnose a problem and treat yourself according to what Google would suggest. Most educated people would go to a doctor, discuss treatment and proceed from there. Half the world has planter fasciitis and none of us of ever attributed it to to a post pregnancy concern. Thanks for your advice, doctor faux.

    1. Exactly!! I could not believe what I was just reading. She just kept talking in circles and not actually sharing any useful info. Now a lot of women will think vitamin d and calcium will do the trick for foot pain. Oh my…
      Please, If you have persistent pain of any kind, go see a doctor. Do not read this ridiculous blog!

  42. I developed really bad foot pain after having my daughter. I actually had it while pregnant towards the end of the pregnancy. Turns out it was plantar fasciitis. Had it in 1 foot first then after a yr it felt better but then the opposite foot got it too. Dr told me it was due to extra weight while pregnant & using flat shoes with no support. I wore slippers the last 2 mos cause my shoes didn’t fit anymore due to very swollen feet. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten 100% better but it is tolerable now thanks to antiinflamatory meds at the beginning, custom orthodics, some therapy & better shoes. Now I use Crocs shoes on a daily basis or on occasion, nice soft wedge sandals. Don’t think my issue will get much better than it is, my daughter is now 11 1/2 yrs old & I still suffer from it from time to time but it is tolerable now. So if you’re pregnant, stay away from flat shoes with no support!! Use Crocs, but not the flat ones. I swear by them, I have maybe 20 pairs or so….lol. Hope this helps 😊

  43. Is this a joke? Seriously. I know you want to advertise and sell clothes but don’t attach to a blog about how you self diagnosed yourself through GOOGLE. If someone has severe foot pain, they need to see a doctor. I feel like you had no content to write about so you just wrote a long blog that didn’t make sense and now you are pushing people to self-diagnose through google. Please stop.

  44. Ali- thank you sooooo much for this post! It is so crazy the things we go through post-partum. I honestly thought I was the only one with foot pain and I felt like I was 80 years old getting out of bed every morning! I did see an orthopedic doctor who recommended specific stretches for my feet/calves, good shoes and inserts. Thank you for the tip on the vitamins- will definitely try that too! It’s so nice to have a community of women who are going through the same things, and knowing we aren’t alone! Xoxo!

  45. I had foot pain so bad after my 1st baby that I would have to crawl into her room in the middle of the night to get her out of her crib to nurse her. It was TERRIBLE! I couldn’t even walk sometimes. Turns out there is a weird thing called postpartum tendinitis and I had it. I had to wear super ugly foot braces that laced up the front and were very tight for about a month and it helped a lot and then the pain went away. I’m so glad I didn’t get it with my other 2 kids but man, I feel your pain, literally. It was terrible.

  46. I had this after my first baby (3yo) and a little after my second (7 mo). Turns out my arches fell during pregnancy, so if I walk around a lot bare foot (like at home) they will feel sore. I found some sandals with good arches to wear around the house. It’s gotten better over time, but I need to be more mindful of wearing supportive shoes much more regularly, like at least every other day.
    Thanks for your posts about being a mom. It’s nice to hear you be so authentic. ❤️

  47. WHAT. This is a thing??? I never once thought of googling this, yet have been experiencing foot pains since I had my daughter in July. (Didn’t have it with lay son). Thank you for enlightening me and maybe now I can relieve it.

  48. Funnily enough I got foot pain after having my son after having a daughter! Only on one foot but it was really bad at times! I even got xrays on it and got a referral to a podiatrist and never went. My son is now 10 months and the pain eventually went away but I never connected the dots of it being possibly postpartum related.

  49. Hi Ali! I have followed you on social media for a few years but this is my first time commenting. Thank you for writing this post! I have been experiencing foot pain like you have described since my daughter was born two years ago! I understand what it is like trying to take care of a baby 24/7 while experiencing this type of foot pain! As moms we always put our children first and sometimes tend to ignore the pain that we experience. We learn to just live with it. I too have tried to research this problem and found no answers! Congratulations for being so brave in what you discuss on social media, it must be hard sometimes dealing with negative comments! Obviously we should rely on what our doctors recommend, but sometimes it’s just nice to hear that other women are going through what you are!

  50. FIRST OF ALL FOR ALL YOU HATERS: THIS IS A REAL THING AND THERE IS A NAME FOR IT. But it doesn’t come up on google unless you KNOW the name, which she didn’t and it’s FINE. The hormone Relaxin, which is released during pregnancy to loosen and open up the pelvis for birth is still present in the body postpartum. This also affects ligaments in the feet and can cause fallen arches and serious pain for a long time after birth. Read this article and find another place to be senselessly judgemental.

    http://www.advancedfootanklewi.com/PainInformation/PostpartumHeelPain

    1. Well maybe if she spoke to a physician/OB regarding this she could have given us a more valuable information as you stated above instead of relying on google.

  51. I totally had this too!! I found a pregnancy insole that was super helpful and I wish I had worn it throughout my pregnancies—probably would have helped prevent the pain!!!! They are called Mommysteps. Best.insole.ever. They are heat moldable and so supportive. I buy them now as gifts for my pregnant friends.

    1. Just read the other comments about relaxin and plantar fasciitis and the collapsing arches. That’s exactly what these are for!!! And they fit in my pretty flats! Love them!!

  52. I am so glad you wrote this! I have had horrible pain since having my son and at times have even questioned if I have a stress fracture or something. Glad I am not the only one!

  53. You are a mind reader i swear! I was just googling postpartum stress fractures (and found nothing), because my feet hurt so bad! They ache sometimes, mostly in the morning, but then there are areas that hurt like an injury, sore to the touch and everything! It’s just another weird pregnancy and postpartum thing I guess, but I feel like I’m falling apart! I’ll definitely try your vitamin suggestions. What dosing are you taking? Are you still taking a pre/postnatal vitamin, too? (I’m still nursing)

  54. About a year ago I had horrible pain in both feet a few hours after waking- I started wearing these awesome sandals around the house instead of walking around on tile/wood barefoot- OluKai is the brand- they are AMAZING- within a few days I noticed a difference and in 1-2 weeks the pain was completely gone 🙂 hope this helps..

  55. This is so interesting that so many women deal with this… definitely sounds like plantar fasciitis. While I would get a doctor’s recommendation, try checking out OOFOS footwear. They have a bunch of different styles (sandals, shoes, boots and clogs) and absorb impact when you walk so it takes stress off of your feet and supports your arches. I’ve heard of so many people who have plantar fasciitis who absolutely swear by them.

  56. My daughter is almost 8-months, and my feet still ache if I don’t wear slippers! I’ve been taking magnesium and Vitamin D (maybe should add calcium too), but I find the biggest difference if I wear comfy slippers in the house and don’t walk barefoot on the hardwoods all day!

  57. Ah so good to know I’m not alone. I had bad foot pain near the middle to end of my pregnancy and while most of my symptoms of pregnancy went away foot pain is one that has majorly lingered. My daughter will be 5 months on Monday and it’s srilk going strong. I will definitely have to try out the vitamin d and calcium. Taking care of myself is not something I’ve been doing lately.
