38 Weeks and Swollen

It's not like I haven't been dealing with swelling before now... but for some reason today, I was possessed to take a picture of my feet and legs at work... because when I try to point my feet, I can feel the skin stretching.  And it's not just my feet and legs.  Oh no, my hands are feeling it too!  Luckily I removed my wedding band long ago, as I knew that I would not be passed over by the swelling fairy. 

Other good feelings this week include no sleep (although Benadryl helps), complete absentmindedness (which is especially fun at work when you're trying to maintain a level of professionalism), and a hunger that simply won't quit (which is great for my hopes of ever looking normal again).  And I said I was going to be one of those women who DIDN'T complain about pregnancy in the end days.  Well, that has gone down the drain.  I'm crabby, and I don't care who knows it!  Come on, John Michael!  It's got to be getting crowded in there!  There's so much space out here!

Well, at least others can laugh at me at this point.  Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
