cramps and swollen feet

I'm in my 18th week of pregnancy. Can share how do you all alleviate cramps and swollen feet. I seem to have it quite frequently nowadays when I lie down for a brief period of time on one side. :(

My gynae advised me to lift my feet up when i’m lying down. Personal thing I did was to wear slipper around the house and stop wearing sneakers and just wear crocs (super comfy) so my feet can breathe. Not sure if this will help for you.

other than walking, elevate your legs, you do need to drink more water. it does works for me.

Water retention is normal. Do yoga safe for pregnancy for aches and cramp

Elevate your legs and wear compression socks!

Swimming is beneficial when pregnant
