I know that some swelling is normal, but I don't know what really makes it ABnormal. I've had pains in my left leg only, and that one leg will swell, and get really really blotchy and it hurts, but not my right leg. Just my left calf :( and cause it doesn't happen in the doctors office, they don't get to see what I mean.

Mine was like that< I had to wear sandals because my feet were too swollen for shoes and the sandals would even leave huge imprints on tops of my feet. Although I ended up being diagnosed with pre-e at my 37w appointment and delivered my son the very next day.

Did the induce you because of pre-e or did your body go naturally?

Is it normal for the skin on your legs to get blotchy when they swell tho? And for it to hurt? I've ready blotchy skin can occur if you're cold...

I went to an outdoor music festival around 32 weeks, and when I came back home my feet had never been so swollen and sore. Even now, at the end of my pregnancy, they haven't gotten that bad again! But they were TERRIBLY sore then! and super swollen too! (Keep in mind this was a 3 day event also - we stayed with some relatives in town to avoid camping but there was still a lot of walking that I did during the hot day, so even though I did stay hydrated, obviously I kind of asked for it). Anyway - All of that is to say that, it's probably normal, especially if you've done a lot of walking lately, but keep an eye on it regardless.
