I am 36 weeks pregnant and the last few days my left foot has been hugely puffy but my right is normal. Is this weird? or normal? It feels really strange.

I would get this checked out by the midwife as you might have a problem with your circulation. It is perfectly normal for both feet to be puffy but just one seems odd. Just to be safe get checked out.

I had this same problem, and my OB told me, that it was just from the way the baby was laying. It is a good thing to get checked out though, because swelling in just one leg, could mean a blood clot. So, I would get it checked out right away.

I agree with Louise--I would get this checked out right away. Edema (water retention) is normal during pregnancy in the feet and lower legs, but to only have that in one foot seems quite odd. As Louise mentioned, this may indicate a problem with your circulation. Only a doctor will be able to assess the problem and help you with it. Good luck!
