During pregnancy our body produces more blood and fluid to accommodate you and your baby. You can have swelling during any part of your pregnancy. However, most occurs during your 3rd trimester. Most swelling occurs in your hands, legs, ankles, and feet. Cause could be it's summertime, you've been standing for a long time, or perhaps you've eaten too much salt. If the swelling get worse or does not go down a little bit each night during rest. I would consult your doctor about this, as it could lead to preeclampsia.
