Wedding Weekend

on August 4, 2014

Thank God it’s over….

The wedding day started at 7 and we didn’t get to bed til 2 a.m.  and the entire day was filled with drama.

My issue was all about clothing though.  The dress barely fit and was horribly uncomfortable.  There were four pieces of boning that were digging into my sides and back because of the way it fit around my belly.


That however, wasn’t the worst of it….after 19 hours of being on my feet, most of them in some of the most uncomfortable shoes I’ve ever worn, my feet and ankles swelled up like I’ve never seen them before.


The picture is from the next morning.  Just a few hours earlier it was so bad it was uncomfortable to bed my ankles to a 90 degree angle.  Some sleep and putting my feet up helped a little, but it wasn’t until I woke up this morning that they looked a little more normal.

Today, it’s back to budgeting for baby and figuring out when to do my childbirth class.  Originally they had classes every Sunday so I was waiting to sign up for 2 months out, but now I can sign up for 2 1/2 months out or just 1 month before our due date.  Not sure what to do….either way though, I’ll be making sure I keep my feet up this afternoon still.  It’s too early in this journey for this!!!!

P.S. We have agreed on a name finally – but the hubs says I can’t tell anyone yet.  Soon….

    Oi! I’m 19 hours on your feet sounds like torture! Glad the swelling went down! You looked gorgeous though 🙂

    Oh mama! I can’t relate! I was MOH at my little sisters wedding in June, and was around 18 weeks…my ankles were like tree trunks! I found that coconut water helped a TON (apparently the potassium helps flush out excess water). Keep those tootsies elevated and hope you feel better!
