Swelling feet during pregnancy
I am in my 28th week of pregnancy, and am experiencing heavy swelling of my feet. What can I do to reduce the swelling? I have tried elevating my feet, but this has not helped much.

Try to walk as little as possible, wear flat shoes, elevate your feet. You should also have your blood pressure checekd as swelling can indicate a raised blood pressure.
