Corned beef legs after swimming?

Is this normal?
Noticed when I got out of the pool that both my legs were covered from top to ankle and a little bit of my lower tummy
Didn't actually so much swimming was with ds so mainly in the shallow end, no breathlessness or anything and the water wasn't cold
Also have had two occasions in the past week where I've seen 'stars' only for a few seconds and completely at random (not when I've just stood up etc)
Could the two be related?

I'm due at the mw tomorrow so will check with her then but wanted to just sound off

No idea about the corned beef legs, but seeing stars would worry me, I know that visual disturbance can be one of the signs of pre-eclampsia. If it happened to me, I would call the midwife today and not wait until tomorrow. It is probably absolutely fine, but you aren't qualified to make that decision.

Thanks jojo
Did try to call the main office but the line was busy, I have a morning appt so hopefully its just something and nothing
I'm so much more anxious and aware of every symptom this time around
