Um, I would like my feet back please. These salamis with vienna sausages cannot be my feet. Who made me a Mr Potato head and why?

Yesterday I had normal pre pregnancy feet. Today, I poked them to see if they really were me!

Of course today is the baby shower and I get to REALLY waddle like this.

Anyone else's body doin weird things?

Oh and by the way, the midwife says the baby is big. I said that's great. She asked if I had any of my children early. I said no, then she said well you might.

LOL thanks!

Well I'm "due" (four dif due dates, thanks docs) May 17 but I don't think I'm goin that long. Just have a feelin I'm gonna have her in about a week to two weeks.

*le sigh*

my sister calls my feet "stay-puft marshmallow feet." by the end of the night they are INSANE. actually the past few days they've been relatively good comparatively but if you saw them and heard me say that you'd feel really sorry for me.

my nose also gets bigger in pregnancy. luckily this all goes back to normal within a few days of birthin' (or did last time, anyway).

That would be awesome if we had them on the same day!

A water birth sounds amazing. Can't wait to hear how it goes

My feet were/are the most alarming part of the final stages of my pregnancy b/c they are/were so gigantic! Stay Puft Marshmellow man is a great description! I liken my feet to the people from WALL-E who are stuck in their chairs on the spaceship and have ridiculous looking feet.

My right one is slowly losing it's fluid but my right foot is just as swollen--no fair!

Yeah the phone rang this morning...it was Shrek. He wanted his feet returned. That pizza I ate last night did me nothing but evil. First the heartburn crept to my ears and had me literally gagging. Now my feet AND fingers are all swelled up. Why did I eat pizza? Blah!

I'm very much going to gorge myself on straight protein this week with some greeny greens from Trader Joe's, loads of water and tea and some light chores/movement. At 34.2, I'm not willing to have BP creep in and ruin my home birth so swelling is on my red flag take action list.

That and it's really uncomfortable! Walking around the house I can feel how tight my ankles are. Booo for swelling!

Okay, now I feel better about my puffy feet, cause I ain't as bad as you poor mamas! But seriously, all the sudden, here comes the swelling. I don't remember getting this w/DD last time until AFTER I had her. Then, holy cow!

Crunchy mama to my beans (11/06 and 6/04): and with DH since '02. Expected a May flower and got a June bug!
