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.
Put your feet up whenever possible. At work, keep a stool or pile of books under your desk.
Don't cross your legs or ankles while sitting.
Stretch your legs frequently while sitting: Stretch out your leg, heel first, and gently flex your foot to stretch your calf muscles. Rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes.

Wear comfortable shoes that stretch to accommodate swelling in your feet.
Don't wear socks or stockings that have tight bands around the ankles or calves.
Wear waist-high maternity support stockings. Put them on before you get out of bed in the morning so blood doesn't have a chance to pool around your ankles.
Drink plenty of water. Surprisingly, this helps your body retain less fluid. Try to have about 10 8-ounce cups of water or other hydrating beverages each day. (You can tell you're getting enough if your urine looks pale yellow or clear.)
Exercise regularly. Activities like walking, swimming, or riding an exercise bike are good options. Or try a water aerobics class – being immersed in water may reduce swelling temporarily, particularly if you're in the water up to your shoulders.
Eat a healthy diet and limit junk food.
