Pitting edema - should I worry?

I'm 35 weeks with twins and have been made v aware of pre-eclampsia signs as it's more likely with multiples and I had PIH in my previous pregnancy.

I saw my midwife yesterday and urine and bp were fine. I told her I was very swollen, more so on one ankle, and she took a look and thought it's just 'normal' for this stage.

This morning though the swelling in one ankle has started pitting, though it doesn't look any more swollen than yesterday.

Should I call because of the new pitting? Or not worry as my bp and urine were fine?
