In brief: Elevate

Elevating your legs should help with the swelling.
Then again, so will delivery, which should come soon. Good luck!

In brief: First, relax...

First relax and put your feet up! it's not uncommon during 3rd trimester for swelling in the legs and feet but one of the things to make certain is that your blood pressure is under control, especially check for preclamsia/eclamsia (which can be an emergency).
