How to deal with Swollen Feet and Frequent Urination

How to deal with Swollen Feet and Frequent Urination

As your little ones grow and becomes more active, you might experience swollen ankles or feet and frequent urination.

Swelling ankles is common, especially during the third trimester. This is because your little one is putting pressure on some of your veins as it grows. As a result, fluid from these veins tend to pool at the bottom of your legs. At the same time, your little one’s position in your womb puts pressure on your bladder, which increases your number of trips to the restroom. 

To ease the discomfort, here are some tips:

  • Prop your legs up when you can

  • Do some walking or ankle-rotation exercises

  • Wear support stockings to reduce water pooling

  • Drink sufficient water

  • Avoid caffeine1 – it causes your body to increase the release of fluid. 

Pregnant women require 55mcg/day of Vitamin K2. To ensure you get enough Vitamin K, work these foods into your pregnancy diet! 

  • Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, cabbage and kale

  • Vegetable oils, especially soya bean oil

  • Eggs

  • Lean meat

  • Dairy products
