I'm 36 weeks and 4days and lately the swelling in my feet and ankles has increased and become uncomfortable. Its not more than any ither pregnancy and my blood pressure is fine so I'm not conerned about preeclampsia. My question is, does anyone know a remedy? The normal taking. A rest and laying on my left side only works for short amounts of time. I have three children so that isnt a good solution for me lol. Any suggestions would be welcome! Oh and as a side note I do not eat sodium caffine or sugar in excess and drink lots of water!
Uggghhhh...well..you mentioned everything I would've suggested. lol.......Not sure now. My doc did say that with some women the dropping of the baby will increase edema and you can't do anything about that. I didn't ask why.
