    You have not been swollen until now? You are a lucky one! I've been unable to wear most of my shoes and my wedding ring for months now. It is usually worse when it's warm weather, so I am suprised you haven't had it.

    Are you still working? When is your last day? What about DH---when does his vacation start?

    I hear you on the not swollen thing. I was a little last week with really warm weather, but even with my last pregnancy I wore my wedding rings until the end.

    My midwife said I won the prize for being the not swollen one visiting the office that day.

    Exactly what I was thinking! I swell so badly. It's no fun. It has been better this pregnancy than with Audrey but It's still bad. Sometimes when I walk I can actually feel my ankles jiggle. Ick! I'm sorry you're dealing with it. I suggest drinking a ton of water, walking (not standing!) and keeping your feet propped up.

    Same thing I was thinking. I have been swelling pretty bad and outgrew my wedding ring a long time ago and had to buy a temp ring so I don't feel naked. I also have the lovely pregnacy fat face I can't wait for that to go away.

    Yay to getting the crib and shelf all set up! Bummer about the swelling. How odd that it came on that fast, I guess it just happens when it happens. Hope its better today.

    No, I really have been lucky until now! My ankles are pretty close to normal this morning but my hands are a little swollen--not so much that you can really see it (unlike my ankles--they looked like when I stepped in a red ant nest one time, yikes!) but I can definitely feel it. I do drink a ridiculous amount of water but I'll try to walk more than stand or sit as much as I can! It's hard not to sit too much with an office job, but of course the weekends are a nice break. We're having an early Father's Day bbq at the pool this afternoon...floating around cures all

    My last day is June 25th, so I still have two weeks (unless baby gives me an early out!) but DH has actually been on break already since Memorial Day. He had to go in and clean out his classroom last week, but that was it (he was going to have to work through June, but since he quit that job for next year, he was done when the kids were, essentially). It's been really nice to have a house husband He has been furiously working on finishing the patio (I think he might finish today! Or this weekend at least...super exciting!) and the afternoons have been for developing his curriculum for fall (getting it done now so that he'll be able to really take the time fully off when baby comes.) He has to start teacher training for his new job on July 19th, which is one big reason why I hope baby comes earlier rather than later!

    Man, it is GORGEOUS here today. It's been over 100 all week, and today it's only in the 80s! We actually got really cold in the night. A great day for a bbq

    Love the belly pic!!! I'm glad you were able to get the crib all ready. Now you can check it off your list.

    Had a GREAT morning of full on nesting accomplishment, followed by a bbq during which I had pretty strong BH/crampy contractions every few minutes for a couple of hours...after dinner they stopped, though.

    Now, sitting here on the couch in my pajamas, I swear it feels like I have an angry cat in a pillowcase for a stomach. She is going NUTS in there. ????

    (ETA: aaaaand now she gave herself hiccups. Crazy baby!)
