In brief: One leg swollen

Blood clots can occur anywhere in your body and pregnancy increases the risk.
Most commonly they occur in the leg. If they are below the knee they are less dangerous then above the knee. The affected leg usually swells, there is sometimes pain and or rednes. A clot in the leg or pelvis come break loose and go into your lungs. This is a pulmonary embolism and can be fatal.

In brief: Depends

The symptoms of a blood clot are the same as what pregnant women often experience with a normal pregnancy-pain, swelling, redness, or even being totally asymptomatic.
However, a clotting disorder(hypercoagulability) can be heralded by multiple miscarriages.
