Answer: Hello dear. Various factors contribute to foot and ankle swelling during pregnancy. For starters, your body retains more fluid during pregnancy. Also, your growing uterus puts pressure on your veins, which impairs return of blood to your heart. Here are the few tips you can follow Avoid standing for long periods. Minimize outdoor time when it is hot. Rest with your feet elevated. Wear comfortable shoes, avoiding high heels if possible. Wear supportive tights or stockings. Avoid clothes that are tight around your wrists or ankles. Take care.
