Postpartum - swollen feet?

Hoping for some feedback from you ladies? I delivered on the 9th, and the last two days my feet have gotten huge! They were swollen the last few weeks but not like this. Normal?

    I had huge swollen ankles after my first delivery. Nurses told me it's because of the fluid I received during labor (epi, pitocin). Drink a lot of water, it should resorb within the next few days.

    I had it too. It's from the fluids you got in the hospital. It should go away after a week or so. Mine went away but I'm still sore on my shins and ankles.

    Normal! I have crazy biscuit feet. Should go away after a week or so of getting rid of all the fluid built up.

    Yup it's normal holy mamma are my feet ever swollen more than when I was pregnant. My nurses say it was from a medication they gave me to prevent something I forget

    Mine swelled awful aftery first baby. Be prepared for night sweats, all the fluid they give you during labor has to come out somehow. They haven't swelled yes this time.

    My feet looked like shreks for 3-5 days after giving birth. Now I can actually see my ankle bones! Cheers! It'll definitely go down soon. Nothing to worry about. Maybe watch your sodium intake and keep them elevated if it freaks you out. (They freaked me out at first)

    I had terrible swelling in my legs and feet for 4 days after delivery. Elevating my feet and putting a hot rice bag on them helped a lot.
