Pitting Edema

Fun, Fun. I started swelling more than usual yesterday. I continued to swell through the night, with increasing pitting edema when I would get up to pee. All day I have been quite swollen. I can leave 1/2" deep indents on my legs that stay for 1-2 minutes. I did this some at the end of my last pregnancy and had altered kidney function and occasional high BPs but nothing serious developed. (I never had any real swelling in any other pregnancy) This time I am 21 weeks....GRRRR. I check my BP and it was fine. I see the Dr on Tuesday, but if it gets much worse I might just call in tomorrow AM. Just wanted to have a brief complaint!
