I’ve always taken pride in an edema-less journey through pregnancy and more or less, a well-maintained weight. So you could just imagine my horror when in the middle of my 32nd week, I woke up with an extremely bloated right foot with edema that extended well up until the middle of my calf. My OB-GYN complimented pa naman that I had “nice feet” two weeks before that (Na-jinx ni doktora, hehe).
Of course, that’s apart from recent bouts with numbness and tingling sensations in both feet and hands, lower back aches, heartburn and pregnancy carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists. A pregnant woman just never runs out of things to bear with whatever the semester, no?
