I think you could easily put on extra pounds through fluid retention. I always swell when it gets warm during my third trimester. I think if the indentation doesn't go away immediately, it's more than a 1. I usually swell to a 2 or 3 (indentations take many seconds to go away). None of my providers have found the swelling in and of itself concerning and since I've never had any BP issues, I've just had to deal as best I can (drinking lots, elevating as much as possible, not getting too much or too little sodium). and then just look forward to seeing my ankles again post pregnancy. I've never had it be as painful as you've described. I think it would be worth giving your MW a call.
