I also am experiencing this, I am 35 weeks and it is very normal to swell but sudden swelling can be a sign of preclampsia and just try to rest as much as possible and keep your feet elevated. My feet are huge you can not tell were my leg ends and my ankle begins even my calves are swollen and tingly and my right hand and forearm. Having somene to rub your feet helps with the discomfort too. A little advice with my first pregnancy my feet were swollen so I decided to soak them in hot water in one of those foot tub ma__sagers and when I took my feet out they were even bigger.

i also have a lot of swelling...mostly just in my ankles and feet...my husband teases me and says i have cankles. i have what is called pitting edema. it's when you press your finger into the swelling area and the indention stays there for more than a couple seconds...i have yet to figure out how to lesson it. at this point i'm not too concerned though....i'm 38 weeks so hopefully i won't have it much longer. good luck and if you find any solutions let me know
