nothing at all to worry about! it doesnt happen to everyone (just like not everyone gets morning sickness), but its pretty common. i was pregnant over the summer period with my first and my ankles disappeared!! they would ache from the pressure if i walked for any period of time. this time round, no swollen ankles as of yet, but its still cold here. i think it gets worse with the heat?! it did with me anyway... elevating your feet can help or gently stroking your ankles. i hope its not too bad. but dont stress! totaly normal :)
