As your weight increases during pregnancy, its effect starts appearing on every body part of your body. The reason for this is that during pregnancy, the amount of fluid in the body increases and there is pressure on the uterus, then about 90 percent of women have swelling in their feet, heel and ankle and this is a common thing. But during this time there are many other body parts not only in the feet but also where some very swelling starts appearing. So what are the parts here?
You may not be aware, but during pregnancy many women also have swelling in their lips and nose. The swelling or congestion in the nose begins to feel because the blood and fluid in the small veins present in the sinus dilate increases, which can sometimes cause bleeding from the nose. But instead of ignoring any such symptoms, tell your gynecologist about this.
Swelling in gums
During pregnancy, the effect of water retention and increase in blood volume also starts appearing on your teeth and gums. In this case, if you already have a gum disease, then during pregnancy, this disease can give you more trouble. So, during the pregnancy, you should get your dentist checked at least once.
If your eyes look puffy i.e. thick or puffy or swollen, especially on the skin under the eyes where there are dark circles then it is not necessarily due to lack of sleep. During pregnancy, not only the eyes, but almost your entire face gets swollen. The reason for this is also water retention and after delivery everything becomes normal.
Breast and nipple
