Swelling is a normal part of pregnancy that is caused by this additional blood and fluid. Normal swelling, which is also called edema, is experienced in the hands, face, legs, ankles, and feet. This extra retention of fluid is needed to soften the body, which enables it to expand as the baby develops. Swelling may be reduced by eating foods that are high in potassium, such as bananas, and by avoiding caffeine. Also, Avoid standing for long periods. Wear comfortable shoes, avoiding high heels if possible.bAvoid clothes that are tight around your wrists or ankles. Use cold compresses on swollen areas. Drink water, which helps flush the body and reduce water retention. Minimize sodium (salt) intake and avoid adding additional salt to meals.
Is it true that bending down is not good for pregnant mum ?
Bending during pregnancy will not hurt your baby in any way. Nature provides a wonderful cushioning system for the growing fetus. The amniotic fluid allows the baby to move his arms, legs, practice breathing movements and flip around in your womb. It helps the baby to accommodate as you change positions. Bending over will in no way affect your baby’s health adversely.
