Here we are en route to the beautiful island where we met just over three years ago:
Over the last week or so though my stay puft ankles have become a daily occurrence. I’m really not sure how to combat them. Today my left is worse than my right. They are really disfigured (and my ankles and feet never were my finer points). I am quite a statuesque woman but have kept myself in good shape and these feet (and my big belly) don’t belong to me.
I’m not in any pain and I’ve googled pre-eclampsia – swollen feet are the only symptoms on the list that I have. But I am a bit concerned. I can’t keep them elevated when I’m lying down because I can’t lie flat on my back (hurts). I’ve been giving them ice baths, but although that feels wonderful, I’m not sure it helps much.
I’ve noticed too that I’m getting broken veins all over them. I don’t know if they will be permanent.
Any hints about this? Are they dangerous or just an annoying side effect I can ignore?
Anyway – we are putting my best foot forward on this little beach break and hoping that the super-puft one deflates. At least I won’t sink in the sea with all this extra buoyancy!
