Sausage fingers!

One of the beauties of pregnancy, at least for me, it seems, is that my fingers have swollen up into little sausages. Finger sausages. That's unfortunate because I love my wedding ring, that is currently a size 7.5 (yes my fingers are big normally.) Here is a picture of the pretty ring: fingers have swollen a lot. I've taken to wearing a sterling silver band...that's a size 9. That's the same size Shawn wears! *whine* Here is a pic of the offensive hand. Sorry if it blinds you, but my hands are really that pale. This is what happens when I don't tan!! Eek.

That being said, I wouldn't trade any of this (the weight gain, the sausage fingers, the pale, see through skin, the morning sickness, the awkwardness, etc) for not being pregnant. Feeling G kick is such a wonderful feeling! It reminds me what's important in life. Thank You, God, for blessing us!!

Hey there, I chanced onto your blog. I miss seeing you W. nites. It was fun to sit and talk about Beth's outfits. HA HA. No, just kidding, I really liked getting to know you better.

I got really bad carpal tunnel in my 2nd & 3rd trimester so I know what that's like.

Please get checked out by a rheumatologist. I had finger swelling like this during pregnancy and finally it turned out that I had CREST scleroderma, an autoimmune disease which causes finger swelling, and which can be triggered during pregnancy.
