I have a mild preeclampsia and my dr told me to lay in my left side as much as possible and if swelling gets worse call them.

Hi moms!!! Try elevating your feet and avoid avoid salty foods.. monitor yor urine output too...remember avoid salty foods.. because sodium attracts and pull water down leaving you swollen...since youre on medication I know dics told u bout it...hun just avoid salt .elevate your legs...take care!!!

Laying on your left side has made the swelling go down for me it lowers your bp. Since all your organs are mostly on your right side it gives them less stress when you lie on your left
