I am experiencing the same exact thing, only on my lower legs too! I had all kinds of blood work done and the doctors said everything was fine, the only thing was my potassium was low so I was told to eat more potassium rich foods. The doctor also said the reason may be pregnancy related in that your blood is working harder or something...I'm not going to worry about it, hopeful things will go back to normal after the baby comes. Tell your OB they might want to check your iron and platelets etc.
