In brief: Some swelling normal

Edema of your lower extremities is normal during pregnancy.
It is brought on by physical changes to your body and blood chemistry. However, sudden swelling, excessive swelling, one sided swelling or swelling around eyes and face may be abnormal and indicative of preeclampsia or a blood clot.
