:: Ok, seriously, I’ll get off my soapbox and get to the good stuff now. ::
We also had our hospital tour of St. Francis last night, and we were impressed! I really hope that I make it past 32 weeks so that we can go there without question. It was rather uneventful, but being up on my feet so much yesterday seemed to take its toll. By the time we got back home at 7pm (sidebar: just in time for the NBA draft and wooohoooo! Our boy Tyler Hansbrough is now with the Indiana Pacers, taken during the 13th pick!!), I had swollen up like a balloon and Dr. Sims sent me straight to the couch with my feet above my heart. I've never had cankles in my life, and trust me, they aren't pretty. You couldn't see a single bone below my knee! Dr. Greig (MFM) checked my legs yesterday and said that I had started the beginning stages of edema, and Nathan agreed that as of last night, my bottom half was one of the worst cases he'd seen.
Lesson learned... do not walk extensively and put feet up as much as possible. Otherwise, Nathan may have been correct in his statement at Red Robin the other day:
"Hey, this is you and me in another 16 weeks".... See below! :)
