HOw normal is swelling the last three wks of pregnancy? HOw do you know when its normal or when something is wrong?

Been swelling last few days done this in my last pregnancy but it was nothing just swelling from it being time to have the baby. This time its diff don't matter what I do whether I'm on my feet or not they are swelling. My face, nose, hands and all to. I went to the dr today they said blood pressure was a little up not bad no protein in my urine. They done some blood work to check liver funtion and all so was wondering if anyone knew what else it could be or do you think its anything to worry about?
