Oh, it can be tough!
You’re getting towards the end of your pregnancy, things are getting pretty uncomfortable, and your hands, feet and ankles are all swollen.
Add in any element of summer and this usually makes things worse.
Slow and gradual swelling of these areas is normal in pregnancy. Sudden, rapid swelling isn’t. If you get this, or are worried at all, get checked out by a medical professional.
Keeping moving helps. Along with resting with your legs up when you can.
Here are some of the common remedies to help with this. As always, please read the full remedy picture before taking any remedies, and get in touch if you’re not sure.
