Hi Suhasini. Yes. Try keep your feet elevated. Keep your feet on the stool. Also place your feet in warm water with a pinch of salt

Elevation will help. Here is an image on the best way to practice elevation. Also reducing salt and processed foods in your diet will help reduce fluid retention. Make sure that you get your blood pressure checked as at times high BP can cause swelling and that is not healthy for the baby.

Hi, Besides the above, other alternative is keeping both the legs on 2 to 3 pillows n move ur feet forward n backwards 30 to 60 times. See to that u won't keep legs hanging for longer time.
