Answer: Hi dear, it's one of the common issue we face during pregnancy, 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: Plz suggest some remedies for swollen feet
Answer: Hi dear, during pregnancy  you might see swelling in feet and pregnancy-related swelling in the feet can be minimized by the following methods: Elevate your feet as often as possible. If you have to sit for long periods of time, place a small stool by your feet to elevate them. Wear proper fitting footwear. Footwear that is too narrow or short will constrict circulation. If swelling becomes a big problem you may need to have your feet measured several times throughout your pregnancy. They will probably change sizes. Wear seamless socks that do not constrict circulation such as those designed for diabetics. If you are driving for a long period of time, take regular breaks to stretch your legs to promote circulation. Exercise regularly to promote overall health; walking is the best medicine. Drink plenty of water to keep the body hydrated. This helps the body retain less fluid. Eat a well-balanced diet and avoid foods high in salt that can cause water retention.
