Question: Hi iam 23rd week pregnant. My feet are paining and having little more swelling. What are the tips to reduce it. Plz suggest me
Dear high blood flow and also excess fluid that collects in your body tissues causes swelling. It's normal to have a certain amount of swelling during pregnancy, Here are a few helpful, easy-to-do tips:
1. Sleep on your side to keep pressure off the veins carrying blood back to your heart.
2. Get off your feet throughout the day as frequently as possible, even for just a few minutes. It helps to elevate your feet above the level of your heart, if possible. Try stretching your legs up against a wall and add in some ankle exercises a couple times a day—check out instructions in the video below.
