Thankless Cankles!

So the swelling is kicking in!  Dang It!  In this picture you can really see that my right ankle and foot is more swollen than the left.  This was only 1/2 of what they actually ended up swelling up to.  I took this picture at about 3:00 in the afternoon on Saturday and by night fall I had ice packs on my feet.  They actually hurt!   The swelling actually went all the way up past my knees!   It didn't go down until Tuesday morning.  And to me it still looks like my right foot and calf are still a bit swollen.  I think being in the car for 6 hours is just not a good thing for someone who is 30 weeks pregnant.  I don't think I'll be making anymore trips to Ottawa in my near future.  (usually it is only a 4 hour drive but Good Friday traffic really sucked)  The swelling doesn't really bother me, but I did end up with a wicked headache on Monday as well and y'know my mind just went straight to pre-e...  Uh Oh!  But I think I'm fine, just too long in the car, and not enough time with my feet up.

Swelling aside everything in my little world is okay.  I'm really not working too much anymore after the cankles started to appear.  JD said he thinks that's enough.  We had our growth u/s on Monday.  Lola looks good.  Big!  She is currently at approx 3 lbs, 5 ounces.   The clinic they sent me to wasn't any different than my usual clinic.  So if I need it again I'm going to request that I go to my usual u/s clinic.  I have another Dr's appointment on Thursday so I will hopefully get more info on the u/s and about how we are doing.  Hopefully steriod shots will be done on Thursday.

Tomorrow JD is going to paint our bedroom.  He's getting my nesting list started FINALLY!  LOL!  I tore apart our bedroom closet and organized that today.  I got the new curtain for our room.  And tomorrow while JD paints I am going to do the front hall closet, organize some of the nursery stuff, laundry and maybe a quick trip to Babies.RUs, we'll just have to see how motivated I am. 

I've got another post coming on Thursday with the belly shot, picture, and a link to an awesome maternity t-shirt company I'm in love with.  More to come.

Much Love!

Definitely the car ride I'm sure. I started swelling around that time too so don't worry too much about pre-e. Just make sure to take time to kick your feet up :) Can't wait to see your next post. Take care.
