10 Common Causes Of Swollen Feet

Swollen Feet Cause #2: Pregnancy

Swelling in the feet is very common in pregnant women. As the baby grows, it puts more pressure on the veins that carry blood from your lower body back to the heart, causing fluid to collect in the feet and ankles. The hormones released by the body during pregnancy can also lead to an accumulation of sodium and water, contributing to swollen feet.

If your feet swell suddenly, you should call your doctor immediately, as it might be a sign of preeclampsia. To keep the swelling down, don't stand too long, stay cool in hot weather, and wear comfortable shoes.
