My feet and hands itch and I am more worried about getting stretch marks on my limbs than I am on my big belly!! I have a little less than 2.5 months left and I ALREADY can't wear my wedding ring anymore. My ring finger size has gone from a 4.25 to a 7!! Oh and let's not talk about wearing shoes...or the lack thereof. My feet are even tight in FLIP FLOPS!! It is creepy when I can push on my ankle and an indent is left there for a half an hour. I love being pregnant but we'll see what I think of it when the end of July nears and I can't even walk because my ankles won't bend! Wish me luck ;)

UPDATE: I had a doctors appointment today and he said that my swelling will probably settle down when the weather is consistent. He said that changes in temperature, even if it is cold, can make me swell more. I am not as swollen today and I got my wedding ring back on so hopefully he's right!!

Oh you poor thing! I had the same problem when I was prego with Sam! Is there anything I can do to help?

I use to love pushing on my legs and making those indentations. But Matt thouught it was the grosses thing in the world. Those funny men. It will pass, but put your feet up whenever you can. It will help.

Oh that doesn't sound fun. It is so hard to be pregnant expecially when it is going to get so hot! I hope you can make it.

It hasn't even gotten that hot yet! I hope it doesn't get any worse. I haven't been able to wear my wedding ring since before I was pregnant with Will. Will ruined the size of my fingers I'm afraid forever!

Oh Cole. I'm sorry but your post made me laugh...WITH you, not AT you... :)

This is one of those things that you will laugh at later on. Don't forget to take pictures so your children know how much you suffered bringing them into this world.

I always thought that kind of swelling (that leaves indentations for long periods)wasn't a good sign..?? I mean obviously your doc isn't alarmed so thats good but i was always told to watch for that..?? Weirdness??

Hey Nichole! I can't find your phone number so I figured this might be a good way to get ahold of you. We're all going scrapbooking on Friday at Heartland and thought you might want to come (if you're not too uncomfortable that is). :0) I'm also having a Lia Sophia party and want to invite you but I need your address to send the invite to. Could you email it to me? jenn_lynne@hotmail.com
