Q:

Hello all..
I am 35 weeks 4 days pregnant.. I had swelling in both legs n hands.. I am unable to walk more than 5 mins.. But for a better delivery need to walk more in this period.. Even I am having pains at uterus because of expand. What to do..?



Neha Mani Mishra

Please don't exert yourself. If you can't walk take rest. It is not necessary that normal delivery will happen only if you walk. Drink a lot of fluids. Soak your legs in water. Keep your legs elevated when you sleep. And if you have a lot of pain in uterus then please talk to your doctor once

Completely agree with Neha, pls take rest.

Please rest well and if possible have someone to lightly massage ur hands n feet. U must not exert and pressure on the uterus is normal due to pressure from the increasing size of ur baby.

Hi Anon
If you have a lot of swelling please do consult your Dr. Take care

Hey
Please don't forcefully do any activity. Soak barely on water overnight n drink the water in the morning, it helps to make ur swelling feel better.

Walk with rest in between, don't overexert! Drink plenty of water.; Little swelling is fine at this stage, keep a check on ur bp! If either of them increases, consult ur dr
