On Saturday, pregnant socialite Kim Kardashian Instagram’ed a photo of her swollen feet caused by mild edema.
Edema in pregnant women is a build up of fluids in the extremities (hands, arms, feet, legs and face). Pregnant women retain more water, especially in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester.
Swelling in the feet can be caused by wearing constricting shoes and clothing; standing for long periods of time; consuming a diet high in salt (sodium) and caffeine. Eating a diet low in potassium.
Prevention of edema in pregnancy includes avoid standing for long periods of time; wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing (maternity clothes); wear support hose to reduce swelling in feet; eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water (at least 8-10 glasses a day).
Notify your physician/OB/GYN if swelling in your arms, legs or face persist for more than 24 hours and doesn’t improve with rest or elevating the affected part.
