Question: Hii I got swelling in my legs wt to do to get rid of it
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
