big footed mommy?
I have no doubt my friends were hiding pregnancy details from me - all part of their elaborate plans to get to me to give in, take the plunge and get pregnant.
And it worked. Until now, I had no idea what odd things could become of a woman's body these nine months. And beyond.
The weight gain I was prepared for (somewhat). But, I could never have anticipated what a colleague told me the other day.
"My feet grew a whole size and a half," she said. "I still can't fit into my pre-pregnancy shoes!"
She had children a few years ago.
That's the last thing I could have anticipated. And I have such cute shoes! What a cruel joke.
What evolutionary benefit could bigger feet possibly confer on a mother? Extra balance??
Phooey. What's next? Don't tell me my boobs will get smaller once I breastfeed!
