Should I go to the ER? Please read!

Ok, I'm 29 weeks pregnant and quite possibly over-reacting, but...

My left foot, ankle, and calf is swollen insanely. My right foot is slightly swollen, but my left is so bad that there is a weird indentation in my calf and it keep getting worse and worse as the night goes on. It's almost to the point of feeling numb, or like it's fallen asleep. I'm kind of worried that it's an allergic reaction, but then again, I'm pregnant, so it could be totally normal. The only reason I'm really worried is because I've read everywhere that if it is only ONE leg that is severely swollen that it could be a blood clot, or something else serious. So, tell me...has anyone else experienced this?

  • I'd go because i would be paranoid too. Plus, it's always better to be safe rather than sorry.
