Hubby has always loved my feet - he has often said to me that one of the first things he notices in a woman (after a face, boobs etc) is their feet. Its surprising actually how many of his mates share this same opinion actually!! I don’t think it’s a foot-fetish, but apparently it IS important (in his opinion) to have nice feet.
Anyway, currently I have fat feet. And at the end of each fat foot, I have 5 fat little sausages for toes… This swelling only really started a few weeks ago, and its gradually getting worse, and some days are worse than others, depending on the weather, and how long I sit/stand in one position.
I'm having great fun tormenting hubby with my ugly feet now - I keep saying "Look at my swollen FEET!!" and he just about shrieks and runs away! LOL! Not quite, but it IS funny! Ankles have disappeared too, on both sides. It is quite bizarre. Luckily I have no swelling anywhere else. Elevating my legs at the end of the day helps a bit, but you cant do that at work!
We had our all-day ante natal class last Saturday, which we actually quite enjoyed. We learned quite a bit, we both asked heaps of questions, and it was great to have a tour of the birthing suites, and to see the rooms in the maternity ward. The great thing about my hospital is, although its public, you get an individual room - nice. We watched a couple of birth videos, which for some reason made me want to burst into tears. I just found it so emotional watching this woman go through all those contractions and pain, having her hubby supporting her and helping her, and then the actual birth (which was graphic enough in detail, and freaked me out a little bit) - just so … moving. I blinked back the tears though, had to remind myself that I was in a room full of 30-40 strangers!
I'm having my baby shower this Saturday, and really looking forward to it. One of my friends has organised it all, so I just get to sit back and relax! (After I clean the house from top to bottom of course)
Oh and I have decided to finish work a week earlier than I'd planned, its just getting too much. I will be 35 and a half weeks by next Friday, which is enough for me. So I have only 5 days of work left - yeeha! I've got so much to do after I finish though, to get organised for tic tac's arrival.
Have an awesome weekend!
