Those of you end-of-the-month mamas who are currently mourning the loss of your ankles, take heart. Your ankles will return and vanquish the cankle monster.

I had totally forgotten what mine looked like in their non-swollen state.

I remember when I had dd1 and regained my slender ankles. I seriously was afraid they would snap under the weight of my body, they looked so skinny!!

I didn't get quite as swollen this time, but was still very relieved to have my ankles back. I don't know what it was about my swollen legs and ankles -- they positively repulsed me. I mean, my whole body was huge, but it was just the legs and ankles I really hated. Turned my stomach.

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!

I am rejoicing here as well! My feet were also ridiculously swollen (someone here on the DDC called them Shrek feet - good name!) and they really hurt! The feet are pretty much back to normal now (took almost 2 weeks!) and the ankles are slowly returning. I am still marvelling over how skinny (relatively speaking, LOL!) my legs look!

Yeah, Isaac was born at 3:57pm last Wednesday, and by Thursday morning, I could already see a HUGE difference. It was like WOOOOOOOSH.

I never really liked my ankles before. They're "thick," even when I'm at my most in-shape. But now I appreciate them in a whole new way. h

Almost 41 weeks here, and my toes are like little helpless stubs sticking out at the ends of my feet. They're little sausages that can hardly move! ACK!
