Edema in early pregnancy ?

Great community!
I am 32 years old and just feel like I may be pregnant? Was pregnant about 7 years ago yet miscarried. All usual symptoms: breast soreness,headaches,gas, nausea.
I think I cannot be more than a week or 2 along,though.
I have had major swelling all over my body with the greater part being in the legs..
Lot's of pressure. In one week I have gone from skinny to not being to fit in any of my clothes? Has anyone ever experienced this as well?
I will take a testafter Thanksgiving,though...and go to a Dr.
Thank you forany help!

Wow, all those symptoms after 1 week? I do not think your symptoms are related to pregnancy (that does not mean you cannot pregnant, just that these are not the signs of pregnancy). After 1 week the egg would not even have implanted in your uterus yet. After 2 weeks you should have noticed the lack of your period as a clear sign of pregnancy.

Best of luck!
