General Surgeon 's  Response

Due to weight of the fetus the venous return decreases due to which there is stagnation of venous blood in lower limbs. So what you need to do is get an color doppler for both lower limbs venous studies done .

and if dvt (deep Vein Thrombosis) is proven start with blood thinners

Hope this helps
