Yes, mine was very bad as I didn’t put on much weight during pregnancy. Took quite some time before the water retention went away 😪. I couldn’t believe I put on weight after pregnancy. Breastfeeding helped.

After birth is normal. But it will go away on its own. I engaged masseur ,so my water retention on legs went away about 2 weeks later.

Yes i did.. my feet were swelling even more as compared to when i was pregnant. It went away eventually after a week or so.

Yes. But it slowly went off after confinement. Sweating, diet and exercise are important
