Answer: Itchiness and pregnancy are linked. Your hormones are running wild at this time, and your body is producing some hormones that aren’t naturally present until pregnancy occurs. Many hormones are produced by the placenta to ensure that it’s not rejected by the body, but these same hormones can cause you to itch. You can try following 3 tips • Lotion with Vitamin E & Aloe Vera in it • Apply moisturizer. Moisturizers are not the same thing as a lotion. The moisturizer would ensure that u do not get dry & itchy • Apply petroleum jelly

Question: I am 8 week pregnant...i have mild swollen feet and palm....is it normal?
Answer: Congratulations on your pregnancy. Chances of swelling are more in pregnancy,also known as edema. This happens because body produces more fluids during pregnancy. Avoid standing or sitting in same position for longer periods. Exercise regularly such as walking. Drink lots of water. Elevate your legs and sit whenever possible. Minimize your sodium intake. Sleep on left side as it helps in good blood flow. If pain and swelling does not come down or you see other symptoms please contact doctor.Pleade go through Healofy home page for tips, recipes, diet and many more they help us a lot. Take care
