I only want to feel okay for two days running. I'm so sick of feeling on top of the world one day, then like I'm having to carry the world the next. My weekend story will explain..... Friday night we went out for the first time in weeks, and I managed to stay out until 10.45!! It was completely unplanned until the last minute and I think that's why I had such a good time. Some friends rang and asked if we wanted to meet them for a drink. She is 35 weeks pg so I was looking forward to having someone who also wasn't drinking. It was Paddy's night, so I pushed the boat out and drank 2 halfs of Guinness! They took me 2 hours because I sipped them, but I really enjoyed them. It was also lovely to see our friends as we haven't seen them so far this year. Saturday, I had a consultation booked at MAC in Debenhams in Leicester. So I picked my daughter up from the in-laws where she had stayed, and we went into town. I had the most relaxing hour ever. She did a full facial massage and then did my make-up. She was lovely and I looked amazing afterwards!! Spent £120. Then we went shopping for holiday clothes. I was about to give up for me when I stumbled across H & M. £98 later, I'm a very happy bunny. Ooodles of light summer clothes for Ibiza in 6 weeks, and a maternity bra that looks nice and isn't black or white! So we were then going to go to Dorothy Perkins, but when walking down the stairs, my ankles started aching. So we decided to go home. This is where the weekend started to go downhill.... We got home at 3pm, and I took my boots off. My ankle bones were non-existent! DH came home about 20 mins later, took one look at my feet and confined me to the sofa with my feet up. So I spent the rest of the day resting, but getting backache because of sitting in an uncomfortable position with my feet up. I gave up at 9.15pm and went to bed. So Sunday morning arrives...... I wake up and the first thing I check is my ankles, they were still big! When I touch them they feel numb as if I had been sitting on them. So another day confined to the sofa. I finally started to see my ankle bones again at about 4pm yesterday. Then a horrid nights sleep because my back was off because of sitting down all day. And awful vivid dreams that someone kept stealing my car!! Today I'm at work, trying to sit as much as I can, but that's not really possible. I work in the IT department and we print all of the companies paperwork (invoices, statements, letters, etc) and it's my job to do this. So I'm constantly up and down to the printers adding more paper and emptying the finisher trays. It's now almost 2pm and it's the first real time I've had to sit down, and I finish at 3.30pm! My ankles are painful and I just daren't take my boots off to look at them. All I'm asking for is 2 days of feeling good. I had such a great night Friday night, and a fab day Saturday, which was all ruined by my stupid ankles that seem to think I'm 30 weeks pg! Oh well, midwifes tomorrow for the first time in 11 weeks so I'll see if she has any advise for me. Sorry to waffle girls, I just needed a moan and knew you'd listen!!
