Answer: During pregnancy, your body produces about 50 percent more blood and other body fluids to help baby grow. And some of that extra fluid is going to fill up your tissues, especially in your hands, feet, legs and ankles. 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. Put your legs in lukewarm water with little salt.
Answer: Drink water lots and lots of water and pee frequently
