Cankles... :(

I was doing quite a bit of running around yesterday (I thought I was being good...Ugg boots, no hard shoes or anything like that). I went to breakfast, did some light Christmas shopping with my sister, then lunch...home to rest for a couple of hours then off to my first MOMs meeting. When I got home and took my boots off, there they were....little puffy club feet and cankles. I had noticed before I got home that my "fat" ring and my watch were a little uncomfortable, I just figured I was a little warm and so they got snug. So, after a good nights sleep (well, relatively good!) my cankles are still very present. I called my nurse just to be on the safe side and she said to put my feet up for a couple of days (no running around like a crazy lady) and be mindful if I get a headache or heartburn, particularly on the right side. My blood pressure has been low the entire pregnancy so far so they aren't too concerned about preeclampsia...thank goodness! So, I'm downing lots of water today and catching up on TV shows saved on my Tivo. At least until about 4:00...we are having Christmas at my sisters house today because they will be out of town on Christmas. But I will just head over there and do more of the same!

Ewww, no fun. I hope you're still keeping your feet up! :)

Please don't do any running around, no matter how good you feel. Take it from us.

Get those feet up!! :) I'm really good at over-doing it, too. I totally understand. :) I hope your cankles are going down! I've been lucky enough to not have them too bad yet.
