Hi Adya, Thank you for the question.

When a woman is pregnant, the volume of body fluids will indeed increase so that you can find swelling in the body in general, on the knees down, face and hands. This increase in body fluids occurs due to changes in hormone levels during pregnancy so that the body stores more salt and water. You can advise your wife to take the following suggestions:

support the swollen part with a pillow when sleeping regularly exercise, do movement on the hands slowly limit salt intake. In addition, swollen body parts can also be caused by cellulitis, blood clots, arthritis, and others. If the pain gets worse, you should suggest that your wife check with an obstetrician and gynecologist for further tests. The doctor may do a blood test or ultrasound to find the cause after examining your wife's condition. The next treatment depends on the results of the doctor's examination.
