Question: Hello mam... My 5 months are completed and i am getting swelling on hands and feet
Answer: Hello dear. Congratulations for your pregnancy. Swelling is a normal part of pregnancy that is caused by this additional blood and fluid. Normal swelling, which is also called edema, is experienced in the hand, face, legs, ankles, and feet. This extra retention of fluid is needed to soften the body, which enables it to expand as the baby develops Also, your growing uterus puts pressure on your pelvic veins and your vena cava (the large vein on the right side of the body that carries blood from your lower limbs back to the heart). The pressure slows the return of blood from your legs, causing it to pool and force fluid from your veins into the tissues of your feet and ankles. After you deliver your baby the swelling will disappear pretty quickly as your body gets rid of the extra fluid. You may find yourself peeing often and sweating a lot in the first days after childbirth. You can reduce swelling during pregnancy by lying on your side to relieve the increased pressure on your veins. Here are some other tips to reduce swelling: Put your feet up whenever possible. At work, keep a stool or pile of books under your desk. Don't cross your legs or ankles while sitting.Stretch your legs frequently while sitting: Stretch out your leg, heel first, and gently flex your foot to stretch your calf muscles. Rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes. Take regular breaks from sitting or standing. Frequent short walks will keep your blood from pooling in your lower extremities. Wear comfortable shoes that stretch to accommodate swelling in your feet. Don't wear socks or stockings that have tight bands around the ankles or calves. Drink plenty of water. Surprisingly, this helps your body retain less fluid. Try to have about 10 8-ounce cups of water or other hydrating beverages each day. (You can tell you're getting enough if your urine looks pale yellow or clear.) Exercise regularly. Eat a healthy diet and limit junk food. All the best
