ewww and owww

The a little over 35 weeks pregnant I offically no longer have ankles. To make it even more interesting I fractured a bone in my foot and the walking cast really creates some interesting swelling not to mention a whole new definition to waddle.

The oww...I am pretty sure I have gotten pregnancy carpal tunnel. Ouch, that hurts! Anyone have any experience with this? Do the wrist splints at night help?

All I had w/ESPeCIALLY my first pregnancy was horrible swelling in my legs and feet. I had really bad pitting edema and I actually couldn't even fit in my usual size shoes! However, I also had hyptertension at the end of my pregnancies. (Oh, and someone told me she referred to what used to be her ankles as cankles= ankles+calves)

Right after delivery, both times, I always thought about how much water weight I was about to lose and how I'd be able to wear all my shoes again! LOL!

Don't have any experience with that, but do with swelling. I had Severe PreEclampsia and there were weeks at a time that I was stuck in bed/couch and definitely in the house. It HURT.

So sending you LOTS & LOTS of
I hope you get to feeling better soon!!
