So last night towards the end of work my leg started to hurt like real super bad so i look at it and sure enough it was all swollen..by time i got home it was like a big gross balloon.salept with it up on a pillow and now its fine im only 12 weeks, i didnt have any swelling untill like 7 months during my last pregnancy... not sure what that was about but it pretty much sucked..

That does NOT sound normal, even for standing all day. My legs swelled the minute I got out of bed, but that was much later in my pregnancy. Do not hesitate to tell your doctor. At the VERY LEAST this needs to be monitored. This just does not sound right. Call them. That is what they are there for.

It could have been a number of things! The swelling may not even been pregnancy related, but you should keep a check on it and if you seen anything different contact a pyhsician. Your sodium level could have been up.

Well to ease your mind, call the doctor or the nurse. There is nothing like having a peaceful mindset. I truly pray all is well for you.

im hopeing it is just because i was on my feet most of the day, but am slightly concerned becasue i have kidney disease and am now worried maybe it was related to that, and i no certain things like blood clots and pre eclampsia can cause seveare leg pain and swelling.. im sure im just being crazy and parinoid tho... guess i will wait and seee if it happens again then call dr if so..
