Beautiful Cankles

Ahhhh....gotta love this awesome pregnancy symptom.  I wore socks to bed for the first time in weeks last night and when I took them off this morning I had these very lovely indentions around my ankles from the elastic.  :shakes head and rolls eyes:  Sometimes my feet and ankles get so swollen that I actually get little fat rolls around my ankles!!!  It's pretty funny...but I'm not brave or courageous enough to take a picture and post it for the world to see.

I'm officially too big to take care of my feet, cankles or not.  My toenails are in dire need of a session with the giant clippers and my heels....ugh!...well, actually I could probably use one heel to sand down the toenails on the opposite foot and then swap.  Maybe thats what I should do and solve my heel and  toenail problem all in one shot...although nothing really solves the cankle problem save giving birth!

And now to re-focus our attention a little northward my belly button has definitely become an "outie".  It's come out of it's shell I guess you could say.  For weeks there it just stayed flush with the rest of my belly and I thought maybe I would escape the Outie Experience...but it wasn't meant to be.  Sometimes it pokes out a lot more depending on how Jimmy happens to be laying at that particular moment.  Oh and for those of you that don't know: the skin on the inside of your belly button is extremely sensitive/ticklish and numb at the same time.  I don't know how it happens to be that way but let me tell you that skin itches/tickles like crazy if anything even thinks about bumping into it, I can't even wear my badge anymore because it was driving me crazy.  But when I scratch said skin it's strangely numb feeling!  Oh and how weird is it that I'm scratching the inside of my belly button???

These are just a couple of things that you encounter on the road to growing a human being and it's definitley not things you ever dream of.
