Where about a in Australia? I'm south of Sydney and with my first, I was about 25 weeks on Christmas Day - my feet swelled up then until she was born on 25/3. This pregnancy will be the same so I'm expecting it this time
Hi there :-) I'm in rural north queensland. Did you find anything that helped with the swelling?
I feel your pain. I live in Arizona, US. I'm 38w3d and about half of my pregnancy I've dealt with triple digit temps and humidity. Ugh! It's aweful!
So, my tips for you: drink lots of water (have it with you at all times and drink often), take walks during more bearable temps, take cooler showers/baths, keep your salt intake to a minimum and wear loose cotton clothing.
*drinking water and walking really do help with the swelling problem.
Good luck and congrats!
What helped me is taking cool baths, putting cold packs on my neck, eating ice cream. The heat is awful, I live in Houston tx with heat index all summer of 110. It has been awful cause my air conditioner is horrible. I wish you luck
I feel ya im in sydney (south west) and am 27 weeks and yeah its been heating up quickly , this is my 3rd baby and I had my other two in the middle of summer january and this one due in dec so ive always had my bubs in summer! They must like the heat.lol just try to take it extra easy dnt do too much and stay hydrated and dnt spend alot time outdoors in the heat and u may get swelling so make sure u put ur feet up wen u can , hope that helps:-)
Level your feet & try too stay cool throughout the day. It's totally normal. It just recently cooled down her in California, i had the same problem! It could be from too much salt also.
