Im a little over 3 months pregant and since last Thursday i have had tingling, swelling, and a cool sensation in my leg. i went to the er last sunday, they did a dopler on my leg to check for a blood clot but there wasnt anything there. Anyway the tingling has stopped for the most part ( it still comes and goes) but my leg feels swollen, the cool sensation in my thigh is still there and there is a pulling feeling in my thigh when I move it or walk, can someone please help me figure this out??

At 20 weeks I also noticed a tingling and numbness on my upper left thigh. If on my feet an hour or more, it begins feeling cool, then turns to a burning sensation (sometimes almost unbearable). At my most recent check-up, my doctor explained it is a pinched nerve, due to my growing uterus. She said it is fairly common, nothing to worry about, and should go away shortly after delivery. I hope this helps!
