Question: my feet are swollen ..is it normal? how to relieve pain from swollen feet?
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. 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.

Question: My feet got swollen. Is it normal?
Answer: Hello dear. I talked to my doctor about this and he said it is rather uncommon but most likely due to the increase in production of blood and happens to some women. He said it has nothing to do with pre-ecampsia or salt intake and that after a week or so most women notice it goes away completely. Hope this helps.
