swollen ankle and pain

So I've tried to google this and it keeps coming up as PAD, pretty sure that's not the problem lol. I'm 26 weeks and last night my right ankle and calf started swelling and you can see all the veins in my ankle and foot. It was just an achy feeling at first with some swelling so I took a warm bath, some tylenol, and I elevated my leg and put ice on it. When I got up this morning it was still swollen and everytime I put pressure on it I have a sharp pain all the way up to my knee. Anyone else experience this?

 Ive never had any issues with my ankles besides just swelling...I have had knee pain before, but that was the hormone relaxin coming on down causing it.  I hope you feel better

Is there any way you could have injured it? If not, it could be a blood clot. You may want to see your doctor. Is it red at all or hot to the touch?

I would call your doc, sudden swelling like that could also be a sign of early pre-e.

no way I injured it. it looks like there is some discoloration around the ankle bone but I haven't hit it.
