In brief: No!

You really need to go in and be checked by your ob-gyn or midwife without delay.
You could be experiencing pre-eclampsia. Best to have your health care provider check it out. If you develop a headache, or start to experiences flashes in your vision, you should go to the ed.

In brief: No it is not normal.

If you are pregnant passed 21 weeks and your hands and face are swollne - it should be investigated asap.
Feet swell often due to preasure on veins in groin area as pregnancy abdominal size is increassing. But reagrds to hands and face - blood preassure and other laboratory studies should be done emergently.
