What is the cause of swollen feet in 39 weeks pregnancy?

What is the cause of swollen feet in 39 weeks pregnancy?

Like any mass...: The baby is a mass growing in your pelvic region, and it causes pressure on some of the blood vessels obstructing the blood flow from your legs back to your heart, thus causing your legs accumulate fluid. Although it largely improves after the pregnancy is over, it may lead to the formation of the varicose veins and some leg swelling to remain in the future.

I'm 39 weeks pregnant, and considering an epidural. However, I'm concerned about spinal headaches. Should I be?

No: A spinal h/a usually is from leaking of spinal fluid. It can happen but is treatable. Remember that this is a great time in your life and when the time comes you will make the right decision about the spinal or not. Ask you OB about the options and what they will do in the event something happens. You will be fine. Congrats.

Observe: As long as your blood pressure is normal and your urine specimen does not show protein, it probably is just late pregnancy fatigue. Rest, hydrate, and tylenol (acetaminophen) es could be helpful. Sometimes a cup of coffee or tea may help also.
