OK this is my 4th pregnancy and I know that swelling is normal but my calf is so swollen that it hurts to walk I can feel the skin stretching and it's not I can't walk painful it's uncomfortable to walk painful. I don't walk much I mainly sit around the most walking I do is to the rest room and back. Plus I've been drinking alot of tea because plain water makes me sick for some reason. But I'm 30 weeks pregnant and my next doctor appointment is next wends. So is all this normal should I call my doctor or just bring it up in a week in a half when I see him?

Its normal, but when you lay down, try to prop your feet up to make them higher than your head or just more elevated. Swelling can also be from getting too much sodium in your diet.
