Pregnancy/Maternity

Common discomforts during pregnancy

Varicose veins, oedema, and heavy legs

Varicose veins usually appear during the last trimester. Oedema is the result of water and salt retention. It is not dangerous unless related to arterial problems. To avoid this problem, refrain from standing up for long periods of time and wearing socks that cut off your circulation, and try to elevate your legs slightly when you sleep. Your legs may feel heavy during your pregnancy. Don’t panic, it's normal. It's essentially due to the stagnation or slowing down of blood and increased blood pressure in the veins of the legs, as well as the loss of tone of the vein wall.
