Open Toe Sneakers For Pregnant Women and More

Are you expecting a child? Becoming a mother for the first time is exciting, rewarding, and totally unpredictable. Although women will most likely bombard you with pregnancy advice, the fact of the matter is that no two pregnancies are alike. Even if you’ve already had a baby, you could experience a difficult first pregnancy followed by a relatively easy second pregnancy. As your body navigates the changes associated with pregnancy, you can take certain steps to feel more comfortable. Today, we would like to discuss the swelling associated with pregnancy.

What Causes Swelling?

When you are with child, your body retains more water, which causes swelling, also known as edema. As your uterus grows in size, it puts more pressure on your pelvic veins and the vena cava. One of the larger veins in your body, this vein is responsible for transporting blood from your lower limbs to your heart. When your veins are under pressure, the return of blood to your legs slows down significantly, causing it to pool.

When Does Swelling Occur?

Most women experience swelling during the third trimester, when the pressure from their uterus is the worst. Women carrying multiples can be particularly vulnerable to swelling.

How To Reduce Swelling

Keep your feet elevated as much as possible and avoid sitting with your legs or ankles crossed. Whether you are sitting or standing for long periods of time, make sure to periodically walk around to get your blood flowing. Wearing waist-high maternity stockings could also help reduce swelling. For anyone retaining water, it’s important to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Although you may not feel like it, exercising helps temporarily reduce swelling and you will feel better. You could try walking or participating in a water aerobics class.

Adjustable Shoes For Swollen Feet

While you are pregnant, our open toe sneakers could be the perfect shoes for you. Designed for both comfort and support, your feet will feel comfortable even if the rest of your body does not.
