Q:

34 weeks of pregnancy. since 3 4 days I have seen my foot n hands swelling. whenever I had got my bp checked it was always normal. please suggest if it's normal or anything to worry about. I have my regular check up due tomorrow.



BabyChakra

Since ur check up is scheduled tomorrow , do get an exert opinion.  usually there is water retention at advanced stages of pregnancy.  try and keep active and be mobile. also put ur legs at an elevated level to reduce water retention.

Don't worry. It's normal in pregnancy. Take a short walk morning and evening. Keep legs up( elevated) while sitting. Mention this to your gyno. Take care.
