Really bad swollen legs. Help

Is it normal for your legs and feet to swell up really bad and turn very very Red and burn?  I get it more when I stand up or walk around.. Even if its for just a min. They automatically get red and swell up.  I told the dr last time he said it was normal but it just feels very weird and even if I lift my legs they are still red and swollen. Not as bad but still. By the way I am 38 weeks.

Not sure about the red and burning part, but the swelling is defintely normal. I had what I called "elephant feet" for the whole last week of my previous pregnancies but it was gone by the time I got out of the hospital.

Id double check with the Dr though about the redness and burning though.

There should be an after office hours number you can call to reach a Dr on call to get advice. Or just call L&D and see what a nurse or Dr there will say.

The last time they checked her she was 5lbs 13 oz at 35 weeks. But I have gestational disbeties and my husband is big and was a big baby and I am very small only 4"11. I have been stuck at 2cm dialated and it seems that she is stuck up high because she has gotten to big for my hips. So when I went go the dr yesterday they said they didn't want her to get any bigger I am getting induced at 39 weeks hopefully I can have her vaginaly but have high chance of having to get ac section. I'm just glad my dr is giving me the chance to have her vaginsaly but I will have to get an epidural because if they have to do an emergency c section they don't have to put me out completely
