This is amazing!

I just had to share this with everyone... chubby feet! I was having a hard time getting my swelling to go down so I took this picture to texted it to my three moms to see what they suggested.



Soon after, they got worse (I have no picture of that). Anyway, my mom was not happy when she saw me for dinner that night. She really just wanted me home with my feet up. She is very worried that I might get pre-eclamsia. But then the next day they got a little bit better, followed by a lot worse! While we were packing for Josh to leave I literally had to lay down with my feet almost straight in the air to relieve the pain. So after taking Josh to the airport at 5:30 am on Sunday, I decided I would watch my free movie channels all day and just keep my feet up. I barley even ate. But look at them now.



Whew! I was starting to think I was going to have fat feet forever. And try not to be too jealous of the beautiful pedicure I got today at the Arizona Grand Spa. Thanks Dianna and Melissa!!!

I am so happy to see that and to hear that you are taking it easy. Let's keep that little girl safe and sound until daddy comes home!

You poor thing! I remember having chubby pregnancy feet! Here's a scary thought: after you have the baby, your feet may never go back to their previous size. It's been a year and a half since i had my son and i finally just gave away all my old beautiful shoes because my feet have gone up almost a whole size! Several of my friends have had the same thing happen. Yikes!

Lots of water and feet elevated! Hang in there. You'll get your feet back once your precious little one arrives. Mine were just as big as yours with Ahnica, but unfortunately I was working up until she was born and couldn't put my feet up in my cube. :oP Praying for you!!!

Oh my gosh Jenni, I'm in the same boat right now! Except on Monday at my last appointment, my blood pressure was extremely high! They are monitoring me right now and I had the paramedics on Aaron's truck check me out. They said mostly to just watch for symptoms like vision changes, sensitivity to light and headaches. I think this is the main reason I'm ready for her to be here now, I can't stand the chubby feet. It gets quite painful at times. Oh and the pool is supposed to help push the fluid back into the the muscles where it belongs, so get your tush in the pool!

You have chubby feet before, I had them after. But like someone said, lots of water and feet elevated!
