Answer: Hi dear, Swelling is very normal part of pregnancy.it is usually due to water retention and more blood supply. Swelling in legs and hands is called edema,and is quite normal.it happens to keep your body soft to expand during pregnancy. Try to drink plenty of water and lower intake of salt in food. Try not to hang your legs and keep it up with support. As the pregnancy progresses ,you would experience lot of aches here and there. Nothing to panic much.these are all normal. Since the baby growth pushes most of your internal organs along with pelvic bones,various kinds of pain ranging from throbbing pain to pinching pain, streching pain. They are mostly normal. Increasing body weight stresses your back and also puts pressure on legs.you would experience back pain and leg cramps too.try to be active as much as possible.daily walks for atleast 20 min would be helpful.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
