Can sudden swelling be normal?

Omg my foot looks like... well, huge. I've had swelling this pregnancy, even pitting, but right now I took off my socks and my feet look awful. My hands and face arenr any more swollen than usual, but I can barely move my toes. If the swelling goes down does that mean it's just normal and not a pre-e concern? I felt awful today and was going to go in to labor and delivery but I was convinced they wouldn't be able to do anything to help so I stayed home.. feeling much better this evening, I just could not believe the size of my foot. I could feel that the skin was tight and swelling was probably going on but no idea it was gonna be like THAT!

I can't tell if it's gone down some or I'm just used to it now

Yikes. I'd call my OB personally for peace of mind. Just because I've never heard of sudden severe swelling happening outside of pre-e.
