Dear Tessa
These questions about your pregnancy and previous injuries are best answered by your doctor or clinic sister( I hope you go for regular follow-ups!) The swollen feet are also something you need to discuss with them, as this can be caused by several things. I do not know how far pregnant you are, but if it is reasonably far, the pressure of your tummy on the arteries in your legs can cause the blood to flow back too slowly and cause the feet to swell.
Hope this helps
