32 weeks and Cankles

I've made it to my next goal of 32 weeks. My Dr even cheered when she walked into the room at yesterdays Dr appointment. 32 weeks is quite the accomplishment when we first started with a shortened cervix at 20 weeks.

Now with all of that said, I have an announcement to make...

I have cankles!!


How did this happen to me? I have calves and I have ankles. I DO NOT have cankles. 

I'm not quite sure if it is from swelling (hopefully) or if it's from pregnancy weight gain (18 lbs thus far). Either way I don't care, I just know that jeans have now become my new BFF. I've got to hide those big boys some how. 

In another glamorous pregnancy news, my feet have grown a full shoe size. I've gone from an already large size 10 to a small row boat in just a few months. I swear I can't even wear my flip flops anymore. Did I mention my feet are swollen/fat too? What am I supposed to wear now? 

Thankfully these nice Chinese ladies agreed to make me some new shoes, because I'm pretty sure my days of shopping off the rack are OVER!

At my 32 week appointment the other day my Dr  made a plan to pull me off all my meds at 35 weeks. WOOOHOOO!!! I love having a plan. It gives me something to look forward to, ya know besides having a baby hahaha! 

And here is a crappy cell phone pic of my 32 week belly!

Nearly peed myself laughing at the shoe comment accompanied by the picture!! If it helps...Paris Hilton is a shoes size 11...actually, in hindsight, that may make you feel worse! Sorry! ;P

Your feet may not ever go back to their normal size, but your cankles should! Yay for 32 weeks! You're in the home stretch!

I LOVE that your pic looks like the avatar at top! LOL. By 32 weeks if my feet weren't up they, and my ankles, were soooo swollen they turned purple! Ewwww. Yay water retention! Hang in there. 32 weeks is great!
