Ever had cankles?

I have a friend who used to laugh at herself, because she said she has “cankles.”  If you’ve never heard of cankles before, it’s when your calf runs into your ankle… calf + ankle = CANKLE.  It’s basically a fat ankle.  I would just crack up when she talked about her cankles.  In fact, I think we actually called her “Cankles” for a while.  Well, it’s payback time I guess.  I have somewhat prided myself on the fact that I’ve had minimal swelling thus far in my pregnancy (as if I have any say in it, really).  Well, last night… ankles were just fine. This morning… not so much.  I took a bath, and when I got out and started to put some lotion on my legs I could NOT believe my eyes… MY ANKLES HAD DISAPPEARED!  True cankles staring me right in the face. They appeared out of nowhere!!  Anyway, it’s quite disturbing.  Tonight we had our small group over, and I had to cover my cankles with a blanket, because I didn’t want to look at them!! HA…  Anyway, I just needed to share my pain.  And I might as well say that I have 18 days until my due date!  YAY!  It’s time to have this little boy and get rid of these cankles!  🙂
