  • Reduce your sodium and up your water intake. Then, put your feet up (above your heart) as much as possible, and have your SO massage your legs, moving upward to help the fluid move up. How far along are you? Is it pretty severe? If it is, you should try to get in to see your doctor. It can be indicative of other pregnancy related issues, like preeclampsia.

  • call your doctor I had the same thing with my legs and it was preeclampsia.

    I was pregnant with twins and it was my due date, right on time.

  • Drink plenty of fluids and prop your feet up as much as you can~

  • Stay off your feet. Prop your legs up. When you sleep put a pillow under them even.
