Oh my, that looks so painful. I'm really feeling for you. I'm praying that you'll have a healthy baby girl in your arms very soon!

OHHH....i'm so sorry! it looks painful I'm not going to lie! Your almost there, your almost there, your almost there! Holy cow your almost there! Woo hoo!

Um p.s. we totally are friends...and yes we do need to hang out, and yes our kids will date one day! Yea. But really the husbands are both from the northwest...they would have lots to chat about. So one of these days AFTER your baby comes of course, cause its going to happen very soon...we should get together.

keep your spirits up! Can't wait to see her!

OH MY YOU POOR THING!!!! I am soo happy you took a pic of this and documented those feet. I'm putting you in my prayers!

Ani said...

oh shiz. i remember those days. you are just going to die over how sexy your ankles look after she is here. i would just stare and stare at mine when i was nursing that first week! it is a wild thing.

jenna said...

oh sweet jenna. glad you decided to post this! :) it's even worse on a computer screen. i love you. you know my ideas....

Philip and Mandy said...

Oh girl I feel your pain!! I'm due in 2.5 weeks and the swelling is terrible for me too! I don't even recognize my hands/feet/ankles and my face even. Let's both hope & pray that our babes come soon!

Solutions to your problems:

1. sex. grotesque when you're 10 months pregnant, but Jake will be happy! And baby will come.

2. off roading. Remember me a week plus overdue? 4 wheeling did the job. 12 hours later, Treyson.

off roading and sex.
interesting combo.

oh, I am so sorry! I hated the swelling! Best of luck to you! I was terrified of labor, but it ended up being such a great experience, so you have nothing to fear! Good luck! I can't wait to see pics of this little sweetheart of a girl!

Andi said...

Oh you poor thing! I have a picture exactly like that from the end of my pregnancy. I think it was the same day, I said, "Honey! Get in here! I think I have elephantitis!" So not fun! I'm sorry :( (oh and just skimming over comments, don't worry about toxemia if this is your only symptom! Swollen ankles are kinda a pregnant woman thing - don't stress!)

Best relief I found was soaking in a pool for a couple of hours - your legs will thank you!

aw jenna i'm sure you can't wait for your sweet little girl to come - it will be soon and will be completely worth it.
