First, a pregnant woman NEEDS salt due to increases blood volume; so unless you are the type to dump a tablespoon of salt on every dish, there is no reason to cut back.
Second, swelling in the hands can be a cause for concern. Preeclampsia is rare before 20 weeks, but it can happen. I would call your provider.
