How are you? Are there other symptoms present? During pregnancy it is common to experience swelling or discomfort in the legs. However, if you experience additional symptoms such as tenderness, redness, warm skin and pain, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Regular prenatal consult is highly recommended. Take care and do keep us posted,
