Elevate your feet.
Hi there. Well, being mindful of blood pressure is important. If you are swelling due to high blood pressure, your doctor needs to know. Lowering your salt intake and drinking tons of water is also helpful. And when you are sitting, prop feet up. That helps. Stay active though too as that also helps.

I did have high blood pressure after birth. So that causes swollen feet? Oh wow , no good then. They kept telling me I needed to relax at the hospital bc my pressure was high but that's all they would tell me.
This particularly affects the large vein (inferior vena cava) on your right-hand side which receives blood from your lower limbs. This pressure slows blood circulation in the area and causes the blood to pool. Pressure from this trapped blood forces water down and out through tiny vessels (capillaries), and into the tissues of your feet and ankles. This water is normally absorbed by your body, but because you're pregnant, you retain more water, which adds to the swelling.

Water retention is an issue a lot of women face which can be a cause of swollen feet. However, it can also be a sign of a blood pressure issue. At this stage I'm assuming you are seeing your OB weekly....he or she is the only person that can determine if this is ok or not. Did it just happen? Or has this been going on for a while? If your Dr. is aware of it and there is no medical issue, try to stay off your feet and keep them elevated as much as possible.
I am 21w1d and my feet are seriously starting to get swollen. What can i do other than decrease my salt intake to help the swelling??? Please help. My feet hurt so much.
Standing for long hours can cause peripheral pooling of blood and increased pressure which could lead to swelling of the ankles and the discomfort. So move yourself around to avoid pooling of blood. Keep your legs raised when you sit down or while sleeping. Being overweight can also be one of the causes of swollen ankles without pain, it can also occur due to edema or water retention. Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Take rest and elevate your legs while resting.

Hello, my feet have been swollen for about a week now and I am not sure if I should be worried. They are the only part of my body that is swollen. I have read online to try putting my feet up, and I do at home, but they are still swollen. Also, exercise. Well I have done zumba 2 times this week, but the more I do it, the more my feet hurt. My right one hurts, the left one doesn't. I am not sure what else I can do. None of my shoes fit me right now, so they all hurt to wear.

Starting around Thursday Feb 18th at 11pm, I noticed my feet were swollen. The swelling is mainly on the top and the sides of my foot. It ends right around my ankle/sock line. There was no pain, no discoloration, and no scratches for infection. I went to the ER because I was scared. They ran blood tests and a urine test, and EKG. My kidney/liver levels were fine, as was my urine. The EKG was also normal.

Hi, I've been having some problem with swollen feet (well, the swelling goes up to my knees now). Today I officially couldn't put on any of my shoes except slipper types - wearing crocs now. The swelling doesn't go down significantly even over night. I tried to wear my sports shoes today, but my feet started cramping so bad I had to take them off. This ain't good. I used to have shapely ankles and calves and now there's no definition, only pudge!
