Swollen

My doctor put me on bed rest. I have 6 weeks to go. My baby has not been like she should, so he said do sugary items. Than he got worried I gained 7 pounds in 2 weeks. He said it is mostly from water. So he told me to eat carbohydrates to get her weight up. I had a problem last Saturday, went into labor and had a uti. My cervix is closed. So any how.... How can I get my swelling down? I put my feet up and just relax due to bed rest.
