While I was pregnant my feet grew 4 sizes. This didn't happen until our last minute move to Chicago when I was 33 weeks pregnant. Which is a very painful memory...that Penske Truck drive from Florida to Chicago with 2 cats in the cab...and my feet dangling, swelling, numbing. Over the next 8.5 weeks my feet ballooned out...growing to watermelon size faster than my breasts had when I first got pregnant.
By the time I gave birth the only shoes that fit me in the house were my husbands flip-flops which is what I wore to the hospital.
For 6 weeks after giving birth the swelling remained. The puffiness eventually subsided but the length unfortunately left my former petite size six feet with clown size shoes for my 5'1 stature. I was now an 8, or even 8.5. Over the winter I got by with three pairs of knee high boots which were a present to myself for giving birth. But now that spring and summer is inevitably approaching (it is right?) my shoe collection is fairly incomplete. I can't bring myself to throw out the shoes that don't fit (for fear that my feet will shrink as soon as I do)...and I also can't bare buying shoes with that retched size on them.
I really don't know what to do...I'm in Limbo.
