Just what you wanted to see, isn't it? My ugly feet! But I had to take a picture since I have NEVER seen my feet, ankles and legs like this. I have think I may have cankles. The swelling in my feet and legs has gotten significantly worse over this past week. I used to only really get swollen at night, but now it's all day. I called my doctor, and will see her on Thursday for my weekly appointment, but she doesn't seem concerned as my face and hands are not swelling. As for my left foot being more swollen than the right, she seems to think it's because of the position of the babies.
Speaking of the babies, I had my MFM appointment today for a growth scan. It was the first time I left there feeling worried about my girls. Baby A is quite a bit bigger than Baby B and the fluid around her has increased since my last visit. Baby A weighs a whopping 5 lbs. 4 oz. and Baby B weighs 4 lbs. 5 oz. Baby B is right about where she should be, but we couldn't get over how big Baby A is. When Dr. Fee came in to see us, she said that her first thought is gestational diabetes is the cause, and I will probably have this checked on Thursday with Dr. Wisebaker. However, it doesn't really make sense that GD would cause one baby to be big and not the other baby. Dr. Fee doesn't seem worried at this point, but she wants to recheck my fluids in 2 weeks. Sometimes high fluid levels can indicate birth defects, etc. So I walked out of there feeling scared and worried.
I know that I shouldn't be worried if my doctor isn't, but I guess it's just what I do. I am a worry wart and it's my maternal instinct kicking in. I want my baby to be ok. I don't want there to be a problem. I feel so helpless. I guess I am back to where I started before this pregnancy. I am back to waiting and praying.
