Cankles and Other Fun Things of Pregnancy

Pre-natal appointment was on Thursday afternoon.  Only a 0.9 lb weight gain this time (despite the 6 lb gain at my last appointment which made me a little irritated) even though I’d eaten my weight in junk over the last two weeks.  Dr. Awesome told me that she could give me a water pill if I couldn’t get the swelling down any other way.  The swelling did not go down so I went in on Friday (less than 24 hours after my pre-natal appointment) and told Dr. Awesome that I wanted the water pill she offered on Thursday.  NOW.  I was wearing flip-flops and she took one look at my lovely cankles and handed me the script for it.

So… the water pill has gotten rid of most of my cankles and the swelling in my feet.  The swelling in my hands, however, is still there.  The problem: it’s mostly in my right hand and I’m right-handed.  I can’t take the water pill every day because it’s not good for Daniel so… I’m typing 8-fingered  and trying to use my touchpad with my left hand instead of using my mouse.

My 7th wedding anniversary is tomorrow so Jon and I are headed out for a nice dinner tonight in town after his Cub Scout meeting.  (It would be after work tomorrow except that he has a mid-week Lenten Bible study at his faraway church.)

Also… a shout-out to Jon’s aunt Jan who is reading this.  We’re both tickled that you’re looking forward to being a “great” aunt.  :)

I will try to get tummy pics this week…

    ooo – I never thought about being a “great aunt.” That sounds so old! Thanks for sharing this journey – Daniel is a fortunate baby.
