I would call your dr. It can be a sign of DVT.

that happened to me and I went home and elevated my feet. Make sure it's above your heart. It will take several hours to see any improvements but it should go down. If not, I would call the doctor.

I would most definitely call the doctor - just for my peace of mind.

I had that happen twice, but it was both feet and the weather was hot.

I soaked them in cold water for 5 minutes (not very enjoyable) and then layed with the up on the arm of the couch for an hour, they started to go down so I knew it was just pregnancy fat-feet and nothing serious.

If its just one foot I would probably call the doctor

Any sudden swelling is not good.  I hope you saw your doctor!  Let us know how things went!

I hope you're okay! What did your doctor say? Hopefully it is just pregnancy feet and nothing more serious! Let us know how you are when you can!

I had a small blood clot. Nothing they are concerned with! Thanks for your help ladies. I kicked my feet up and it took a while but it went down. Now I wear compression hose and I am good to go.
