Answer: Hie the swelling in your feets is due to increase in blood volume As during pregnancy the blood volume increase near about 50% to meet the increasing demand of your baby and yourself Avoid standing or sitting for long intervals of time as it allows the blood to pool and hence cause swelling Take a quick walk for 2-5 min in between that would help with blood circulation Massage your feets once a day to ease the tension in muscles , get the blood circulating and ease pain or swelling You may apply cold pack or soak in a tub of warm water Also while sleeping keep a pillow in between your knees and below your feets to comfort you
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.
