I tried on my climbing shoes the other morning and they don't fit anymore! Frown
Question for the other women who have been pregnant, did you have to buy new shoes post baby, or did your feet go back to normal?
I just bought a new pair of my favorite shoes before I got pregnant and they are super new and now I'm worried they won't fit anymore! boo

They will probably go back to their original size afterwards. Your whole body is a bit swollen at the moment, and often the feet are the most noticable. I have two pairs of shoes, a comfy all day trad pair, which are probably way too loose, but at my low level it doesn't make much difference. And a slightly tighter pair which I use in the gym. I wasn't able to use the gym pair by the end of the pregnancy, but used them again afterwards.
Now I don't use either of them, becouse we can't figure out how to climb with a 15 month old in tow......

I have heard of some women who change shoe sizes permanently after pregnancy. But it seems that the majority of women go back to their original size.

Yeah, small, climbing with a toddler is a bit tricky, eh? Hope you figure it out. I felt like I had finally worked out climbing with my toddler, and now I am wondering how climbing with a toddler and an infant would all work out...

They will likely fit again after pregnancy. But there is only one way to find out. :)

My personal experience was that I did not notice a change in my regular street shoe size after the first child, but after the second I seem to have gained 1/2 size. I used to wear 6-6.5 in street shoes, but after 2 kids it is now 6.5-7. I didn't have to get all new shoes all at once, because the shoes do stretch/conform to your foot. But over time trying on new shoes I noticed that size 6 never fit anymore, but size 7 feels good.

Thanks everyone... I'm hoping my feet (and everything else) shrinks back to normal after I meet this little guy or girl... I'm so excited to climb again!

I stopped climbing at 8 months because my shoes wouldn't fit me anymore. Then 2 weeks after baby I tried them on and they were just fine!
