Question: My legs are swelling too much.. Is there any problem...
Answer: Hi dear, it's gets really difficult after the legs would get swelled as already tummy will be all coming out. You can reduce swelling during pregnancy by lying on your side to relieve the increased pressure on your veins. Here are some other tips to reduce swelling:
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.
Take regular breaks from sitting or standing. Frequent short walks will keep your blood from pooling in your lower extremities.
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.
Question: i cannot sleep my legs are cramping so much..
Answer: Congratulations on your pregnancy and all the best for your motherhood.
The weight of your growing uterus can push on the sciatic nerve and cause pain to run down the back of your leg. It could also just be leg cramps (most common in the third trimester) — but it could also be something more severe, like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or uterine fibroids, so please inform this to your gynecologist.
You can relieve it to some extent by following the below steps.
Stretch your calf muscles immediately by straightening your leg, heel first, and gently flexing your toes back toward your shins. (Don't point your toes while stretching.
After you stretch, massage the muscle or warm it with a hot water bottle to relax the tissue.
