So my last pregnancy I had cankles for my entire 2nd and 3rd trimester, but this pregnancy I have only had a few days with moderate swelling that went away over night. Since yesterday afternoon my right ankle is very swollen, sore and stiff and my left leg has no swelling. My skin coloring and temp is the same on both ankles. I just had my 38 week check up yesterday and I gained 7 pounds in 1 week, so it's very possible that I am just starting to retain a lot of fluid, but it makes me nervous that all the swelling is in one leg. I live 2 hours from the clinic, so I really don't want to drive back today to get checked out.
Have you had similar symptoms and what did your doctor do or say? Or if you have had a blood clot/DVT what were your symptoms?
