Sigh....I am having a normal pregnancy at last.
Had to experience all the same things everyone else was experiencing - swollen feet !
I have been lucky so far right up to my 36th mid week....my feet remained the same size. Then suddenly on Wednesday night, 2 days into my 37th week, *poof* my right feet began to feel tender and numb!
You can bet I made such a racket about the whole thing and made hubby massage my legs so that the numbness (and I was hoping all that water retention too) will go away ! So, woke up the next morning and lo and behold....my legs decided to stay the same way - all swollen and tender and numb!
"No more cooking, ironing, 1U at 3 pm on Sunday for me", I kinda hinted to hubby! But now I feel so helpless and irritated coz all I can really do is sit down with my feet UP!
Then one irrational evening, I decided to weigh myself. Everyone who goes to the same gynae as I do knows how "obsessed" he can be about his patients' weight. So, when I looked down at the weighing scale and saw that I have put on 2 kg this pass week and a half, I made another racket !!
(Poor hubby....getting shocked out of his skin very often lately)
"What to do now?? How??? Sure doctor scold wan!"
Hubby had a earful of such remarks!
I guess I am going through it fully now - swollen feet and "excessive" weight gain!!!
Aahhh.....how many more days to go you think??
