{nails and cankles}

Pregnancy can do some weird things to you body, but nobody really talks about what can happen after, and I mean months after. One weird thing is that my nails are really hard now and I actually have grown them out to a substantial length. I'm not on the prenatal vitamins anymore so who knows what is causing this, but I'm very happy about it. I've always had brittle stubby nails, so I'm proud of these suckers!

The next phenomenon I'm not so proud about, in fact I'm trying to hide it as much as possible. Almost 4 months post-partum and I have serious cankles. My feet and ankles in the past week have gotten so swollen! Ugh. I went to the doctor yesterday and am waiting for an explanation. Hopefully it is nothing serious, and I won't have to wear support hose. I'm not 80 for God's sake! Take a look at my foot! Yikes!

And lastly, my hair is falling out all over the place. I guess this happens around 3 months pp. Our bathtub drain is not happy with me. Luckily I have super thick hair so I won't need to buy any rogaine.

I am just about seven months pregnant, and I have had cankles on and off for the last 3 months! I thought I was home free after the pregnancy, but now I'm getting ready to just cut my feet off just above the ankles. /sigh

On the other hand, if I get nails like yours in the deal, I might put up with the cankles :)
