Health Tip: Managing Swelling During Pregnancy
Suggestions to help you stay more comfortable

(HealthDay News) -- Thanks to increased blood and fluids in the body during pregnancy, swelling can be an uncomfortable problem.

The American Pregnancy Association suggests how to minimize swelling:

  • Don't stand for long periods, and stick to comfortable shoes, avoiding high heels.
  • When the weather is hot, limit your time outdoors.
  • Take breaks with your feet propped up.
  • Don't wear clothing that fits tightly around the ankles or wrists. Wear stockings or tights that offer support.
  • Soothe swelling with a cold compress or by going for a swim.
  • Drink plenty of water, and limit salt intake.
