Swollen feet and ankles.

Will soaking my feet in cold water aggravate the swelling in my feet more?

Elivate your feet and relax watch a movie while doing so. Elivating your feet should help bring yhe swealling down.

i have also heard of drinking lots of water to help flush out extra water, sounds strange but it did help me a little bit. mostly my doctor told me to wait and that it should leave after delivery. not easy

Yeah increase your fluid intake cause it helps to reduce the swelling, when you lie down, elevate your feet up on cushions so they are above the level of you heart and that helps too x

Lay on your left side when you sleep. It helps your kidney flush the excess fluid
