Don't look at my cankles

My mom is in town. Last time she came to visit we had my breast "health scare". This time I realized that my ankles have gotten fat. So she and Bob got to sit through my litany of "cankle" complaints last night. I'm sure she must think her timing is awful.

Bob has been dealing with my weight fussiness for about a week now. He probably appreciated having some back up last night.

I gained 7 pounds last month according to the doctor's scales. That makes me mad. The doctor said Little Elvis is doing fine. But I feel huge now, especially when I notice how large my ankles have become. They aren't swollen by the way, just bigger.

Is it weird that I'm not upset about the belly? I knew it was going to get big. The ankles (and unfortunately calves and entire legs) are unexpected. I'm going to try to do more walking than my usual mile a day and hope that will help my ankles slim down.

I was so bothered by my newly swollen ankles because they had always been slim - one of the parts of my body I felt good about. Not sure if this is the case for you, but my swelling is due to fluid accumultaion, not fat. Walking always made the problem worse for me. sitting with my feet up helped.

That is EXACTLY my problem, Kelly. My ankles have always been really thin (probably more bony than anything else) and it's weird having a part of your body that has always been thin suddenly start expanding on you. I will elevate my legs this evening and hopefully that will help.

When my cousin was pregnant with her first child she was due in August and I saw her a couple weeks before she was due and she's normally pretty small and her legs and ankles were HUGE, I almost didn't want to get pregnant because of that, but after she had the baby her legs returned to normal.

I'm glad to hear they will return to normal. Thanks Bre!
