Question: I have much swelling in my hands and feet is there something to worry about

1 Answers
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: Hlo.... I am 4 month pregnant and my feet are so much swelling.. Is there anything to worry about?
Answer: it is normal..During pregnancy, your body produces about 50 percent more blood and other body fluids to help baby grow. (In fact, about 25 percent of your pregnancy weight gain is from fluid retention—take that, double cheeseburger and fries!) And some of that extra fluid is going to fill up your tissues, especially in your hands, feet, legs and ankles. What do all these fluids do? They help soften your body, allowing your joints and tissues to open up and prepare for delivery. You’ll typically see more swelling around your fifth month, lasting through the third trimester.
