Swollen feet = lovely cankles!!!

I was sat with my feet up on the sofa yesterday morning, and I noticed that even with socks on my feet looked somewhat chubbier than usual. Now they have been a little swollen, as have my hands which is a normal pregnancy symptom (or possible signs of pre-eclampsia!) so I haven't given it much thought.

Upon removing my socks I was a little horrified to see that my feet were a lot more swollen than they were before!

They are developing into a lovely set of cankles right now - so I'll be keeping them elevated as much as I can from now on!

To give you an idea of before and after, I have also uploaded a pic I took while on holiday a few years ago:



I only hope they don't get much worse!

You poor thing! They'll go back to normal after delivery...right?

Wow, Elly! Just checking up on you - your feet and ankles are really swollen! And I thought mine were bad!
I am thrilled that you are continuing to do well!
All the best!
