I am about 34 weeks pregnant now. The fact that I could safely give birth in three weeks excites me beyond belief. However, those three weeks still feel like a million days away, especially whenever I see my feet and ankles.
You see, one of the things I DON’T look forward to in pregnancy is the swelling of the feet and ankles. It happened to me before during the 3rd trimesters of my pregnancies with both Zoe and Ziya. I was really hoping I won’t have to go through it again ever. Coming into my 8 month of pregnancy now, I was really in such high hopes that maybe it won’t happen again. But of course it did! I just noticed it last Sunday when Kai and I were on the couch watching TV. The sight is really not pretty. Not pretty at all!
Maybe I am overreacting a bit. But my normal shoe size is already 9″ or 9 1/2″, depending on the brand. It’s hard to find pretty and at the same time, good quality shoes in my size, especially here in our country where most women have feet that are only a size 5″ or 6″. Now I have to deal with this! Add to the fact that, although the swelling will subside once I give birth, my shoe size will probably get a bit bigger, permanently. Just imagine the dilemma of finding shoes for size 10 feet. Oh my gosh, my poor, poor feet!
