swelling during pregnancy

I am 22 weeks and have had mild swelling since becoming pregnant. I have not worn my wedding rings in weeks! Then last week I did not drink as much water as I'm used to having and I was on my feet all day Thursday and that night I was horrified to see the indentation the elastic around my socks left on my legs. I also remembered that a pair of shoes I put on that week were too tight! I checked my ankles the next morning and they didn't look as bad- but by the time I got to work my socks had already left a deep dent in my ankles. My fingers and eyes were also puffy. I went to the Dr after calling and my blood pressure and urine were fine. I just wondered if anyone else had swelling that was not considered "dangerous" this early and how it progressed as you got closer to your 40 weeks. I am really worried about how bad this summer will be!!!!
