In brief: Improving muscle ton
Most women who are pregnant develop some water retention.
This is due to the hormone Progesterone as well as changes in the circulatory system that occur with pregnancy. Elevating your feet, warm baths, swimming, support stockings, leg exercises will all help temporarily relieve the symptoms of water retention.

In brief: Why?
Why are you having water retention? It may just be salt, or immobility, but it could be something more indolent and worth following.
I agree, all of the other mentioned answers are legitimate, but figuring out why you have fluid retention may be a worthwhile endeavor.
