Sudden swelling! Is it normal?

I was sitting down having a conversation when out of nowhere my legs (knees down and the way to my toes) swelled up really bad. I got up for a bit, but it only seemed to make it worse. Elevating is helping a little, but I'm still swollen. Is this normal? Is my body trying to tell me something is wrong?

  • Probably because this is my first child and I honestly have no guidance on this besides my Dr and my own research to rely on. Don't have the luxury of having the wisdom from a mother or grandmother or from the gods or whatever. (Not trying to sass, just being honest.) Not sure if it was normal or not. That's it.

    Even if you don't have a mother or grandmother or friend or someone who knows 101 about pregnancy, you have the capability to Google.

    No, it's not normal.
    Yes, you need to call your doctor.

    Even if it were normal for one mother it may not be your normal. Everyone has a different experience with pregnancy even if it’s not their first child. Always call your doctor if your concerned. Our advice and experience shouldn’t replace that.

    FTM can't ask one simple question without getting backlash. Called my doctor and everything is fine. Honestly, just wanted an opinion. I really don't see what is so wrong with that. How the hell am I supposed to know? This is my first time.
