I am impressed you got them in shoes….. mine were never that bad and I lived in flip flops….. and it was winter in Ohio. lol.
OMG!, I am scared, LOL!
Funny/scary video. I am sure it was uncomfortable to have your cankles… but in exchange you have lovely Lil J :)! Always look at the bright side ;)!
Hahaha – good LORD, Mama. Truly a wonder.
Ok Im done.
ok no Im not
ok now Im done.
I had to laugh – I’ve had cankles during two of my three pregnancies! The first time they blamed it on pre-eclampsia, but the third time, well, they were just cankles. 🙂 Mine looked exactly like yours – practically the size of footballs – how uncomfortable!
I can’t believe you got them into shoes. I have to squeeze mine into tennis shoes, and it hurt to walk..So bad.
I cannot believe that you actually made a 2 minute, 31 second long video to your cankles. Even worse…I can’t believe that I just watched the whole thing. lol
Glad your ankles have returned.
With my second pregnancy I had to wear crocs. And not like the flip flops, like the ones you wear to weed your garden. They were the only things I could get on my feet.
I am so glad I wasn’t the only one!!! LOL. Flip flops for me…they would keep that indention for hours after I kicked em off. LOL. The price we pay….
wow, thank God I never got cankles while pregnant. holy crap.
Those are terrible! I hope they have gone down!

LOL. I’ve been lucky to have any cankles so far, but I’m sure once the weather starts warming up that will be a different story.
WOW! I am very impressed you managed to squeeze them into shoes for work every day let alone socks too !!!!!!
Wow, poor you! I had kind of these, too. Not during my pregnancy, but after my pregnancy. It was awful…
Have a happy WW.
You are so funny. I love how you did not overlook any part of pregnancy and make it all so funny to read. I always talk to Matt (my SO) about everything that will happen to my body when I get pregnant, and he just can not believe it. I made him watch this and he could not stop saying how uncomfortable that has to be. I can not imagine!
Oh! I decided to start a blog about our journey into parenthood, check it out if you have some extra time. Operationbabytom.blogspot.com
I had cankles for all of 2 weeks at the very end of my pregnancy and couldn’t have imagined suffering any longer. I was in so much pain. What do your ankles/feet normally look like?
Ah-may-zing. Those are unlike anything I’ve seen before. Please save that for Lil J so she can know what you went through for her to be in this world.
Golly! Was that for real. I’m scared. So is that what I have to look forward to one day? Those totally don’t look like they could be yours. LOL!
