Answer: Hi.. Dear swelling is a normal part of pregnancy that is caused by the additional blood and fluid. It can be experienced in the hands, 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. You can dip your feet in warm water with little salt added in it for about fifteen minutes. It will give you some comfort..
