32 Weeks and a meltdown!

The weeks are coming and going quickly and I am soo OK with that. This last week has really been different than the weeks before...I am starting to feel SLUGGISH and walking is sometimes painful! 

We had a wedding to go to this weekend in Knoxville and I was looking forward to getting out of town but what I did not realize, is that it would wear. me. out. Im not a fan of getting dressed up at this point, simply because I never feel like I look nice enough...just frumpy. I had packed some black, flat sandals to wear to the wedding (given that my feet haven't seen a heel in over 4 months) wanting to be as comfortable as possible. WELL, the last few days my feet and ankles have looked more like those of a 400 lb person rather than my own and when I went to put on the sandals....well it looked like a roast tied up with string with part squeezing through the side (see pic below).

I hoped no one would notice and packed some flip flops in my purse just in case. I then went to meet everyone in the lobby and as soon I saw one of my friends, I lost it! I started sobbing and when asked what was wrong, all I could get out was, "my shoes won't fit". I know this seems silly but at the time I was so upset..I guess this is an example of third trimester fatigue/hormones yadyadyada... So everyone said it was fine if I wore flip flops, which I did, but I just felt embarrassed for not looking nice...and of course I noticed all the ADORABLE shoes everyone else was wearing :)

The rest of the night was Brett danced in my tummy to the music all night! We came home Sunday and I put my feet up all day and could see my feet again by the end of the day! Im happy that we have no other occasions to get dressed up before the baby arrives.

  1. I love reading your weekly updates!!!! I cannot wait to see all of the pictures of the Nursery! And see Baby Brett too... With the two of you as parents that is going to be one beautiful baby!

  2. You look absolutely adorable Sarah! Don't worry about not wearing cute shoes. At this point, no one is looking at your feet anyway. I understand was no fun to feel frumpy when everyone else is looking so darn skinny!
