    I'm not sure, maybe nip down to your local chemist and get your blood pressure checked, all pharmacies do this for free. Just to be on the safe side, then you can decide if you wanna see your midwife?

    Personally I would always get any swelling checked out by a midwife. It's possible that it could just be the heat or because you've over done it but it's better to be safe than sorry. I had pre-e in my last pregnancy so I'm always a bit overly cautious when it comes to headaches, swelling etc x
