Bruising around bunnion in pregnancy

I am 24 years old, and have had bad bunnions my entire life. I've already had one very succesful operation on my left foot that has never caused me a problem since, but this morning, I noticed the area around my right bunnion was bruised. I haven't injured my foot recently, but I am 11 weeks pregnant. I've not gained much weight yet, I am on my feet all day, but I have always been on my feet all day. I haven't changed shoes, I'm wearing the Dansko clogs my doctor recommended. I do recall my doctor saying that pregnany may aggravate the right bunnion, but we had decided to leave it alone until it started causing problems. It doesn't hurt besides just normal fatigue at the end of a day, but I'm wondering if this is something I need to be concerned about, if it's a sign of something permanently wrong, or just a side effect of pregnancy.

Thank you,

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
