Water Retention

1 Replies
vicki k. - March 18

I am only 16 weeks into my pregnancy and my legs are already swelling and they hurt if I sit more than over an half an hour without my feet being elavated. I have cut salt completely out of my diet. This is my third pregnancy and I am 39 years old. Is there anything that I can take to help with water retention. The doctor only says cut out the salt and doesn't give me any further help on the issue. thanks I really appreciate your help on this.......

my doctor says a slice of lemon in water(include the peel)- this is a natural diuretic; also make sure when you are cutting out salt, you don't forget to eliminate the soda pop
