Shoes or relaxin?

I'm just finishing a day where I taught all but 1 period. My knees hurt. Almost feel like I hyperextended them, but as I only walked on Wednesday and did nothing yesterday, that seems impossible. Possible causes: Being on my feet all day in shoes with little arch support that I don't normally wear; or the pregnancy thing. Being RA related seems unlikely, there's no swelling or heat.

I'm at least going to the gym to do some upper body weights today. Hopefully it's the shoes. If not, I guess I just learn to run (or run/walk) with this like I am learning to run with a belly. And hopefully it doesn't progress.

It's definitely the shoes! Well, a combination maybe. I noticed that earlier on- that I couldn't wear the same cute shoes all day without my feet hurting. Wearing running shoes (can you do that?) helps a ton when you're growing like we are!

I bet the shoes are a big part and just standing up all day. My knees don't hurt but feet are killing by the end of the day! Do you have a rotating schedule or normal schedule or what? We rotate and all the classes are 55 min.
Hope they feel better!
