Edema: How Much Swelling During Pregnancy is Too Much?

Many pregnant women will experience some swelling in their hands and feet during the course of their pregnancy, especially, during the last few weeks when your uterus and your baby is putting more pressure on your pelvis.  This additional pressure is causing your body to have to work harder to return the blood from your lower extremities back to your heart.  If your body is unable to get the blood back to your heart quickly enough, your blood will begin to pool in your lower extremities.  This causes your body to begin collecting additional fluid in your feet and ankles.  The swelling is a result of your body retaining more water in the tissue in your extremities.  You may notice more swelling toward the end of the day and if you happen to be pregnant during the summer months.
