Baby side effects

My wrists hurt SO BAD! The water retention can cause symptoms similar to carpal tunnel syndrome in your wrists and is, of course, one of the symptoms I have! Joy! I get to sleep with braces on my wrists and when I wake up my fingers don’t seem to want to bend. Gets better as the day goes tho. I also use a brace at work while I’m at my computer to make sure that my wrist doesn’t bend while I’m typing. (My left one seems worse than the right one so that’s the one I wear the brace on.)

I also have to say that NONE of my sandals fit except a pair of cheap Old navy flip flops. I'm so annoyed!!!!!!!!! Yes, Karol told me her feet grew when she was pregnant, so I knew it was coming, but it’s different when it actually happens!! I started my search because of all the water retention. I started trying on sandals with mom at Walmart a few weeks ago and I had to get a ½ size bigger than usual! I ended up taking back the ones I got with her cuz they were too tight across the top of my foot. Then I tried on shoes at the local shoe store and Maurice’s before Josh and I went back to Walmart to search there again. I ended up getting a pair of backless white canvas shoes that fit SO GOOD! But I still wanted sandals cuz I live in them during the summer. Found a great deal on a pair at Kohl’s on Saturday!

They’re Adidas flip flops with really good soles on them and adjustable straps! They’re perfect and I feel much better now! :-)
