Coping with Pregnancy Edema

This question came up today... here are my thoughts. Does anyone have other suggestions on how to address this common pregnancy woe?

Avoid all salty foods
Drink a LOT of water
Sleep with a pillow under your feet (even while on your side)
Soak in a bath with Epsom salts
Whenever possible lay down with your feet higher than your head

I’ve heard that the compression hose is better than the socks. I never got around to buying them. THEY ARE EXPENSIVE!!
