Hello dear,
Thanks for the query, pedal edema i.e pitting type is absolutely normal in pregnancy. If it is associated with high BP then its a concern. Just take following advise:
1)Take adequate rest
2)Adequate protein diet.
3)Be relaxed and don't stress yourself..........ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR PREGNANCY
Hope I answered your question, Kindly reply me if you have any further queries or any comments. I will be very happy to help you.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Pressure of the uterus on the veins and nerves might be the reason...
Liver function, blood count, Haemoglobin and urine protein need to be checked...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
