Question: My hands and legs are getting swollen so what should I do
Answer: Hi. during pregnancy The body generates fifty percent more body fluids to meet the developing baby’s needs and that also causes swelling which is called edema. Edema or normal swelling is noticed in hands, face, legs, ankles, and feet during this time. The absorption of fluid softens the body, which enables it to enlarge as the baby develops.
Some more reasons that triggers edema are :
Standing for long periods of time
Long days of physical activity
Too much consumption of Sodium
Low in potassium diets
Constant intake of caffeine
How to take care and prevent it.
While sitting, avoid crossing your legs or ankles and keep stretching
Put your feet up as much as possible
Follow this process of Stretching: Stretch out your leg with the heel first after which you gently flex your feet to relax your calf muscles
Keep rotating your ankles.
Hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water because it helps your body retain less fluid
Don’t stay in the same position for too long
Go for short walks to prevent the blood from accumulating in the lower parts of your body
Put on loose shoes that can stretch to accommodate the swelling in the feet
Put on waist-high maternity support stockings the moment you wake up so that the blood doesn’t get to stagnate around the ankles
Avoid using of socks or stockings that have tight bands around the ankles or calves
Exercise routinely – Walking, swimming, or riding a bike could help. Water aerobics is also a good option as being in water reduces swelling temporarily, especially, if the water is up to the shoulders
Adopt a healthy lifestyle by choosing a healthy diet and no junk food
