In brief: Perhaps, but get chk

When pregnant, a certain amount of swelling is expected, as your body water increases (to support the baby & amniotic fluid).
Any swelling can cause tingling, if the compartment in question gets "tight" to the point where pressure is applied to the nerves. That being said, pregnant women are also prone to blood clots, which can mimic symptoms & be dangerous. Talk to your OB/Gyn & get checked out.
