Swollen Feet and Elephant Ankles


I feel like an elephant. Just call me "Tankles." My feet are so swollen, I can hardly bend my ankles. Walking is insanely...weird. Like this weird pressure under my skin. As if I had an excess of water turning my feet into bubbles...oh wait, that is what I have.

That's me in the picture. Yeah, I'm not sure what happened to my feet, but I desperately wanted that watermelon. The trunk? Um... that belongs to someone else.

D-Day is two weeks away. You know, Delivery-Day. Or Dooms Day, if you prefer. Because as much as I'm trying to get things ready before this LO shows up, I can't seem to stay awake long enough to do it. It's taken me nearly two weeks to get through 100 pages of my novel. We're on final edits here. I should be able to knock this out in three days. But it's taken me two weeks! Because I can't seem to stay awake!

I'm forcing myself. We are going to get this done. And try not to look at my feet.

Oh poor Tamara! I feel for you! Plus it's got to be super duper hot there. I'm concerned about this water retention though, do you need to call your doctor?

Oh Karen, you're so sweet to be concerned!

I asked my dr a few weeks ago and he said swelling in the feet and even the hands is normal. But if I start to notice swelling in my face, or it gets really bad in my hands, then it could be a problem.

It's pretty hot...but my AC works. :)

Oh how I feel for you with your swollen ankles. DD will be such a relief, I'm sure. And don't give up on the revisions. Force yourself to stay awake! (easy to say) So glad your AC works. I've thought how Jen would crumple if ours didn't. It's such a blessing.

2 weeks - that's so exciting!!!

Make sure you take care of yourself & that includes your feet. Everything else comes in a far distant 2nd place. :)

edits are done, peoples! Now I can pamper these feet!

You would think flats would be a comfortable shoe to wear to work, but not for five hours. /:

These next two weeks will fly by!

I came back to check on you, Tamara, and see the edits are done!! Yay!! What perfect timing-- edits done & baby coming soon. First baby, then book.

Hang in there!!! If your body is telling you to sleep...then sleep. It's what both of you need.
