Stretch Marks and Swollen Ankles






I just typed a whole post and somehow erased the whole thing and I'm completed irritated about it. So, here we go again, but it's gonna be a condensed version. The first pic, I think I'm 24 weeks, can't remember when I took it. The next is a pretty crappy picture of my swollen ankles, they're much worse in real life I swear. Tomorrow marks the third trimester! 28 weeks down, only 12 more to go. I feel like we have so much left to do and we're running out of time to do it. We have to get our house completely finished from the remodel we did last summer because I can guarantee we're not going to want to do it when the baby finally comes. We just have a little trim left to do and a couple of walls that need painted but I would swear we had a whole house to do given the amount of time we're taking to finish it. We also need to scrub the house top to bottom. We're a little late on the spring cleaning. I have some new found energy but by the time I get home from work everything below my knees is so swollen I swear my skin's just going to burst open. So, I find myself coming home and just propping up my feet to get the swelling down. We have our 28 week appointment on Tuesday so I'll ask the doctor about all the swelling but I'm sure he'll just tell me to keep doing what I'm doing. As long as my blood pressure's fine, I'm sure everything will be okay. I have some shopping to do so I'll post again after our appointment. Hope everyone has a nice holiday!

Hi there! I can't believe that you are about to hit third tri already! I know what you mean that it hasn't really sunk in completely...I feel the same way and will be in for quite the shock once this guy decides to make an appearance. Wishing you nothing but the best. And if it makes you feel any better, I've had stretch marks on my inner thighs since my early teens and I wasn't overweight...you do get used to them and notice them more than anyone else ever will.

Somehow I completely missed this post but I wanted to send you a message to tell you that you look just beautiful with your baby bump. The stretchmarks aren't noticeable. Not in a picture at least and hopefully your doc can help you to stop that swelling. :)
