I couldn't take it anymore! But the good news is I found 'moderate support' pregnancy style hose for $30 on amazon.com!!! The quote from my midwife was $70 locally, most places are $60 something on the net, I found a sale for $45 and then finally $30- shipped!!! whoo-hoo!
I am excited- I took the dog for a walk on Friday and my reward was a swollen aching leg for the next two days. Sheesh! Makes me crabby b/c I am pretty athletic, but I feel best this pregnancy when I do next-to-nothing. If I simply confine myself to domestic chores, I have no ligament aches, no leg swelling, no irritations except a fat butt and bored muscles!
Anyone else want to whine about their varicose veins?!
