Answer: Hello dear. Various factors contribute to foot and ankle swelling during pregnancy. For starters, your body retains more fluid during pregnancy. Also, your growing uterus puts pressure on your veins, which impairs return of blood to your heart. Here are the few tips you can follow Avoid standing for long periods. Minimize outdoor time when it is hot. Rest with your feet elevated. Wear comfortable shoes, avoiding high heels if possible. Wear supportive tights or stockings. Avoid clothes that are tight around your wrists or ankles. Take care.

Question: How to avoid swollen feet?
Answer: Hello dear, Foot, leg and ankle swelling during pregnancy is common and usually goes away after delivery. In the meantime, it might help to.. Stay off your feet. Avoid standing for long periods. When you can, sit with your feet up and occasionally rotate your feet at the ankles and gently flex your feet to stretch your calf muscles. Better yet, lie down with your legs elevated.... Sleep on your left side.It also might help if you elevate your legs slightly with pillows.  Be physically active every day. Take walks, ride a stationary bike. Stand or walk in the pool. Wear loose clothing. Tight clothing can restrict blood flow.... Some research suggests that foot massage and reflexology, which involves applying pressure to certain areas of the feet, hands and ears, might help decrease foot and ankle swelling during pregnancy. Also, swelling doesn't mean cutting back on how much you drink.you should take 10 cups (2.4 liters) of fluids a day during pregnancy. Although mild foot and ankle swelling during pregnancy is normal, sudden swelling that is painful — especially if it's in one leg only — could be an indication of a blood clot.  Hope it helped, Take care urself...
