A very pregnant Jessica Simpson cried for “Help!!!!” after finding no relief for her extremely swollen ankle and foot. The “Dukes of Hazzard” star took to Instagram on Thursday to ask sympathetic followers for remedies to help reduce or prevent swollen feet during pregnancy.

Despite all the beautiful parts of carrying her third child with husband Eric Johnson, this situation with her swelling ankles will only get worse if she doesn’t heed the suggestions from medical experts, say moms on social media.

Any remedies?! Help!!!!

A post shared by Jessica Simpson (@jessicasimpson) on

This week certainly hasn’t been the easiest time for Simpson. “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards even wrote back in the comment section, “I feel you sister.”

Earlier this week, the 38-year-old mother to Maxwell Drew Johnson, 6, and Ace Knute Johnson, 5, revealed she was feeling ill and having a “sick day.”

Needless to say, followers flooded Simpson’s comment section with helpful tips to ease her discomfort. And several remedies suggested by fellow moms are also recommended by the American Pregnancy Association. In response to the post about her foot, some commenters wrote:

I’ve been there ?

Same thing that happened to me when I was pregnant with my first daughter she killed me!! Just elevate your feet up maybe some compression socks!!! Or something that can flush out the fluids!! Hope you feel better soon and wear your hubbys flip flops!!!

Put those feet up! As much as you can…hated having that swollen feeling in the ankles. And…eat less salt. Those are the only two things that helped!

Omg drink tons of water and rest those feet.

Poor baby, ouch yeah elevate and hot or cold packs and call your Doc sugar! I hope u feel better?

Sick Day

A post shared by Jessica Simpson (@jessicasimpson) on

As previously reported by Dearly, this isn’t the first time Simpson has complained about big feet and cankles during her third pregnancy.

According to Kid Health:

“The extra fluid in the body and the pressure from the growing uterus can cause swelling (or “edema”) in the ankles and feet.”

Medical professionals advise women to call their health care provider if they notice swelling on the face, around the eyes, or abnormal signs or symptoms during pregnancy.

In October swollen feet revealed that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum Kenya Moore tested positive for preeclampsia, as previously reported by Dearly.

    If your feet swell that badly, you need to see your doctor. With my daughter, at 36 weeks I had only gained 20 pounds (yay me). In the following week, I gained an additional 20 pounds!! My feet were super swollen. I had developed preeclampsia and had to be induced. Preeclampsia, if not detected in time can lead to the death of mom and baby.

    Totally agree with Cara, Jessica Simpson needs to discuss this condition with her OBGYN immediately as that’s one of the signs of preeclampsia which is dangerous for both her and her unborn child. Hope it gets taken care of real soon.

    I had preeclampsia & had a month to lose 60 lbs! Needless to say I tried but couldn’t! I had to eat fresh vegetables becuz the canned ones are full of salt! Salt free with everything! I thought I would hate it but I love it & have not added salt to anything but country fried steak when I make it! It’s been 45 years since I was told I had it & I haven’t missed salt at all!

    Cut your salt intake and keep you feet up.
