When the swelling suffered during pregnancy is still relatively mild, symptoms will be swelling in the calves and feet that can disappear on their own after the rest. If the swelling is more severe, the swelling does not only occur on the feet and calves but spread to the thighs, genitals (especially the outer genital lips), and abdomen. Whereas if categorized as severe, may occur until the entire abdomen and accompanied by symptoms acites (accumulation of fluid in the abdomen).

If the results of a medical examination before becoming pregnant mothers suffer from hypertension, the possibility of swelling can be prevented. Among others, by reducing salt consumption habits.
