not my right ... just the left. it doesnt hurt but the swelling is to the point it feels tight. like it could pop. lol. not funny tho. ive heard this could be a blood clot. whats the likely hood it is? is there anything else as a possibility? im 31 weeks and this is my 6th child. so im fairly experienced in pregnancy and all that it entails. yet this isnt a issue i remember encountering before.

It helps relieve abdominal and back pain, but also pain and swelling in the ankles and feet, shoulder and neck pain, pain in the hips and breasts due to expansion and/or tenderness, as well as just about any other pregnancy pain imaginable." http://forums.webmd.com/3/pregnancy-high-risk-conditions-exchange/resource/11
