To have swollen legs?? I have noticed the past few days that my thighs and calves are noticeably swollen.. I have never had anything swell besides my feet during pregnancy and its freaking me out. My feet are swollen of course but its not nearly as noticeable as my thighs and calves.

I've only gained 10 lbs total this pregnancy as of today but my thighs look like I've gained like 50!

Anyone else have this happen??

PS- I'm already being tested for pre-e cause of the babies health problems. not cause of any signs. So no high bp or protein in urine

 How much water are you drinking?

Are you up on your feet all day or resting?

 I would mention it to your dr at your next visit then. I know when I was pregnant if I stood too long or didn't drink enough then I would swell up

If your face and hands aren't swelling along with the leg swelling then I would just wait until your next appointment. Does your doctor have a page # to call?

There is an after hours number but I go in on Thursday anyway
