Re: pitting edema with no other symptoms

I'd call your MW/OB and just let them know. I've had toxemia once and preeclampsia with my second.

With the toxemia - I went from stable to having a failing liver and kidneys within 6 hours. Mild swelling and slightly elevated pressure - I mean SLIGHT - it was like 140/75. 6 hours later I was admitted to L&D showing +4 for protein in my urine, BP 250/165, visual disturbances, and severe swelling. I was induced the next day.

I highly doubt something is wrong with just minor swelling (prego's swell!) but i'm overly cautious because of my past
