I was surprised when I read in the pregnancy book that two things can happen to your feet - one, you could go up by about half a shoe size and two, you could get swollen feet.
Now this struck me on two levels. First, I was told that the size of your womb is proportionate to the size of your feet. So if the body naturally starts loosening up everything (hello hippo hips!), does that mean that its loosening up your womb as well as your feet causing the size increase or does it just mean that because the womb is expanding, thus, your feet expand due it being proportionate in size?
The second thing is swollen feet. I've never had swollen feet before and its SCARY!!! Seriously. Looking down at your feet and seeing them balloon up is an unnatural experience me thinks! Why does it happen (and I don't mean just for pregnancy)? Why would God make feet swell? And again, if the feet size is proportionate to the womb size, is the womb swollen as well?
Ahhh...things that come to mind on an off day...
