Swelling during Pregnancy. Is it normal?🤔

Body produces more blood and fluids to meet the needs of the developing baby due to which we experience swelling at our hands, face, ankles, legs etc. WHY AM I SWELLING DURING PREGNANCY?🤔🤔 ➡️This extra retention of fluid is needed to soften the body, which enables it to expand as the baby develops. ➡️Extra fluid also helps prepare the pelvic joints and tissues to open for delivery. ➡️The extra fluids account for approximately 25% of the weight women gain during pregnancy.
