Question: Why are my feet swollen?
Answer: Hello dear. It's normal to have a certain amount ofswelling during pregnancy, particularly in your ankles and feet, because you're retaining more water. ... The pressure slows the return of blood from your legs, causing it to pool and force fluid from your veins into the tissues of yourfeet and ankles. Dip your swollen feet in warm water to which some Rock salt or essential oils have been added. Add a few drops of peppermint oil in the warm water and soak your feet to alleviate the bloating and discomfort. A tonic water soak of comfortably cold water helps to pull out the swelling and pain from your feet. Hope this helps.
