And So It Begins...

Yes, indeed it has begun.
Well, technically it began around week 36 of pregnancy.
But, you know.  It's happened!

Behold!




Oh, the swelling.  See those feet popping out of those shoes?
Yeah, this is swelling that came just from going to the temple.
(Also known as sitting-down-for-two-hours.)

For some reason, having fat feet makes them extremely warm.
All the time.
And as such, I'm sweaty and hot.
All the time.
And poor Bradley has to freeze to death from the car A/C.

Seriously, feet have an other-worldly power to control body temperature.
It's shady, to say the least.
Someone's made a deal with a demon, pretty much.
(Sorry, been watching a lot of Supernatural...)




Ah, and then the hands.
That's Brad's wedding ring on my ring finger.
He's a size eleven, I'm a size seven.
My fingers are like Puffed Cheetos, it's epic!

I'm very happy that I've only had to deal with this for the past
two weeks and only have two more weeks to ago.
I couldn't imagine if this was an half-the-pregnancy-dealio.

It's hard to not only not fit in your pants, but your shoes as well!
Let alone no be able to get your hands through your temple
dress sleeves without a struggle... cough, cough.

Currently one centimeter dilated and 60% effaced as of last Wednesday.
Check-up tomorrow afternoon, maybe I'll have progressed?!
Maybe George will be on time and I'll really only have two weeks left?!
(Not counting on it, but it's good to be optimistic.)
