Edema during pregnancy, pregnancy and childbirth

Children are the flowers of life. Truth is as old as the world. But always relevant. They bring so much joy and happiness into our everyday life. But this then … And while you wear them under your heart, you have to endure so much. Well, if the pregnancy runs smoothly, without severe toxicosis, the threat of breakdown and edema.

When I was waiting for my second child, most of my pregnancy came in spring and summer. I overcame toxicosis quite easily, but edema … For the last trimester, my legs resembled a pair of loaves of doctor’s sausage, tied with string. At one time, even lay on the conservation.

What are the swelling and their causes

I asked the doctor why only in the last months of pregnancy I began to have edema. Her explanation was quite understandable. Firstly, in this position, especially if the period is long, plus the heat, the female body requires more and more drinking. The fluid simply does not have time to be removed from the body, and therefore is collected in soft tissues.

Secondly, the closer to childbirth, the more sodium accumulates in the body. It is this that attracts water to itself, retaining it in the body. Not only the legs can swell (although this happens most often), but the stomach, arms, lower back and even the nose.

It happens, at the very beginning of pregnancy eyelids, lips and nose swell a little. Then, as they say, the face shows that the woman is in position. It can also be caused by a reaction to an allergen, because the body becomes more sensitive. Well, or this swelling of the tissues of the nose is caused by rhinitis of pregnant women. In any case, a doctor should be consulted.

Most often, the swelling of the legs in pregnant women appears in the 3rd trimester, and there is nothing to worry about. Except in cases of late toxicosis. This condition is very bad for the health of not only the mother, but also the baby. True, this is easily determined by a series of analyzes.

If the swelling and arching feeling disappear after a short rest, you should not worry.

What I did

In the morning my legs looked quite normal. But as soon as I worked at least 2 hours in the garden, a tingling sensation appeared in my fingers. And then my legs seemed to be filled with air – any shoes became small.

To get rid of the unpleasant sensations, I rinsed my feet with cool water. Then I needed to lie down comfortably on a sofa and lift my legs above body level. For such purposes, the sofa roller was the best fit. In this position, I rested for 30 minutes. During the day, I made this kind of rest 3 or even 4 times.

And one more thing – if you are advised (not a doctor) to drink hips or diuretic pills, do not listen. Your kidneys and so work for two, where they are still an additional burden. Only a doctor leading your pregnancy can prescribe medication. Do not risk your health, and, moreover, the health of the baby.
