Is this normal?

I'm six months pregnant. I stand and walk all day for work. Today I woke up with pain in my calf. Some parts of the day it was manageable at other times I would be limping. Its been over 12 hours and it still hurts. Is this just cramping due to the pregnancy or should I be concerned?

I would go to the ER. With pregnancy you are at a higher risk of blood clots and you would typically get them in your calf. Better safe than sorry.

Maybe you pulled something? It could be that you're low on potassium? The pp above has a good point as well.

Always worry about blood clots with pain like that

This. DVT can be life threatening.

ER could be a blood clot.

It could be cramps due to low potassium, muscle fatigue, or symptoms of a blood clot.  It is always better to err on the side of caution when pregnant.  I hope everything turns out just fine!
