Hi babe, refrain from eating salty food and drink atleast 2.5l of water. When i was warded for asthma at 36weeks preg back then, i didnt have any swollen feet as the nurse and doc said that it's bcos i dont eat salty food and water intake was good. On top of that dont dangle ur leg. Eg 1 leg on bed and the other leg dangling, it will also be the cause of swollen feet according to my massage aunty . I didnt believe at first till i dangle my feet at 38wks and boom goes my right feet as i only dangle my right feet ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have the same thing! And i have carpal tunnel too๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Better to consult your gynae because every pregnancy is different. I had very bad swell during my 2nd half trimester. Everyone says it's normal to swell but I felt that it's not. And during my regular check up. Gynae found out its pre-eclampsia and was send to hospital immediately. 3 days later, had C-sect and baby was out but had to stay in Nicu for 10days. So best to seek gynae advice. All the best!

It's normal. If u r worried better check with gynae


Water retention? Drink more water and cut down salty food

Only happen after birth, after one week of giving birth.

Base on individual... i havent seen my feet swell yet ... week 25
