If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that my feet were terribly swollen yesterday. Swelling seems to be the one pregnancy symptom I was unable to escape. Although luckily it didn’t really show up too bad until this last trimester.
I recently purchased some compression socks at Bed Bath & Beyond. They are anything but cute. They are black and thick and knee high. So I have been wearing them when I come home from work and sleeping in them. Unfortunately, I washed them and they were line drying so I couldn’t wear them Tuesday night. I think this had something to do with the state of my feet on Wednesday. Not to mention the heat (it’s already 80 degrees here in Los Angeles) and sitting at a desk all day doesn’t help.
But long story short, they feel much better today after resting them last night and wearing my compression socks. Also, as a little secret, I’m still wearing them today. My dress is floor length and black so you cant see them! I think I might try to source out a pair that are more like pantyhose that I can still wear without compromising fashion or having heat stroke. Wish me luck!
Before becoming pregnant I wasn’t really one for maxi dresses/skirts. I’m not really sure what my aversion was. I only owned one, it’s plain black. I think maybe for the most part they just didn’t seem my style. No good answer. But let me just tell you that they are a pregnant ladies best friend & my collection of affordable maxi’s has grown.
Especially in these last few weeks (only 6 weeks left!) when things begin to get uncomfortable and your options for what still fits start to get smaller and smaller, they really are a blessing. They are loose and comfy and still cute. So get into it because you will likely see more of them in my future.
