Question: I am 26 weeks pregnant and i am having swelling on my feet
Answer: Hello, Increased blood flow and pressure of your growing uterus on the pelvic veins and your vena cava (the large vein on the right side of your body that returns blood from your lower limbs to the heart). This causes you to experience this swelling. Below tips can help you with swelling; Avoid long periods of standing or sitting. If you're on your feet a lot, take breaks and have a seat. If you're sitting down a lot, take a five-minute stroll at least once an hour. Kick up your feet. If possible, elevate your legs when you're sitting. Who has a better excuse to put up her feet than a pregnant woman? Sleep on your side. If you don’t already, try sleeping on your side (preferably your left) – it helps keep your kidneys humming along, which in turn helps waste elimination and reduces swelling. Move it. Try to get some pregnancy-appropriate exercise, such as walking (which keeps the blood flowing instead of pooling) or swimming, if your practitioner OKs it (the water pressure pushes fluids from your tissues back into your veins, where it goes to your kidneys so you can pee it out). Avoid tight elastic-top socks or stockings. Your goal is to let blood and fluids flow as freely as possible. Wear comfy shoes. Especially while you're out (those sexy slingbacks don't fit now, anyway). Consider orthotic shoes or inserts as well, which can make your feet feel better and can reduce leg and back pain during pregnancy too. Once you get home, switch to a pair of soft slippers. Drink lots of water . It may seem counterintuitive to try to flush out fluids with fluids, but drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day will help rid your system of excess sodium and other waste products, minimizing swelling. Don’t go crazy with the salt shaker. Limiting salt too much increases swelling – so don’t cut it out entirely. But like everything, it’s best to keep your intake in moderation and salt to taste.
