Where are my ankles?

I just looked down at my feet and I have no ankles! I had them this morning but not now! Go ahead...laugh. It truelly is funny...uncomfortable but funny. I look like Fred Flinstone! I thought this was one pregnancy symptom I was going to avoid. I only have 10 weeks left! I noticed my feet starting to swell on Friday but I thought it was because it was so hot in the gym during Karly's graduation. Up until yesterday was able to wear heals to work! Evidently there was a bet going regarding how long I would continue to wear them. Well, as of right now my feet won't even fit into them! I ended up wearing flip-flops to work today (just one of many things pregnant women can get away with). The flip-flops, um....they left indentations on my feet! That's how swollen my feet are! I've read all the pregnancy books and have come to think that maybe I'm not drinking enough water. I've read the more water you drink the less water your body retains. So I will be drinking more water thoughout the day. Hopefully the swelling goes down soon. I don't know what shoes I'm going to be able to wear if they don't!

The ankle/feet swelling is the worst! I hated that more than the morning sickness. I finally starting sleeping with my feet propped up on a pillow...it seemed to help, but not always. I actually wore my slippers to work on a few occassions! I hope they feel better soon!
