Umm, can I have my feet back?!

Of all the changes pregnancy brings - who would have thought that I would mourn the loss of my feet the most? Oh, I still have feet - they have not disappeared or anything. They are just FAT. Fat ankles, fat toes, swollen tops... I mean, seriously, I HAVE CANKLES!

Nature is a cruel, cruel bitch. She takes away my waistline. She gives me monstrously huge boobs. She adds on 30+ pounds to my already voluptuous figure. I cannot go shopping for my usual chic array of shirts, skirts, pants, etc...

Couldn't she have left me my feet? My normal width size 8 feet? Did she have to take away my joy of shoe shopping, too? It seems so unnecessary and cruel. I cannot sleep on my belly. I cannot enjoy hot baths. Margaritas are OUT. And so is SHOE SHOPPING? What the hell? There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

More than anything, once I have popped this baby out (and oh if it could be that easy) I am looking forward to seeing my feet again. I know that my waist and tummy will take a little while to deflate. I know that the weight I have gained will take a while to come off. But from what I hear - I can expect my feet back within a week. And for that I cannot wait!

Is that what pregnancy is for? Am I supposed to start appreciating all of those little things that will change once the baby arrives? If so, nature is not only cruel - she is a smart one. Very clever! I hope I remember all of these little lessons...

The other day I said to my man while chugging down some beer (after a hellish day a work)... "hey, how can I even think of having a kid? How would I go 9 months -almost a whole year- without 1 drink?!?!" His response: "you're such a lush". That was the end of that convo as we laughed it off.

Somewhat personal question.... do you plan on doing the natural birth thing? Yikes, thats my biggest fear-ouch. In any event, I'm sure you'll bounce right back. :) I'm so excited for you. I want to see you now, but then I'd want to go back to see the baby! Oh well, what better excuse to take 2 trips? hehehee
