I know, I know I said that I wasn't going to do it (post a picture of my ankle) but I had too. I figure, its better to laugh than to cry. Not that this swelling issue hasn't brought a few tears to my eyes. Oh and yes I am in need of a pedicure too.
This is what I have been dealing with normally on my right side but on a couple of occasion the left side decides to join in the fun. This past Sunday my toes, that are normally pretty stubby looking looked like those small baby hot dogs that no one buys but just laughs at in the baby food aisle.
Now I have spoke with my midwife and as long as my blood pressure don't go up this is all considered healthy. And I have to say that since this has happened my stress level has been way down because I have only been work 2 day a week.
I have an acupuncture appointment, and I can't wait. For me acupuncture ranks up there with a good massage. The baby loves it too with all the good blood flow he kick and play the whole time. It is a blissful hour and a half for me. Oh and it helps with my swelling too.
