Definition: Kankles (as described in the Urban Dictionary)-
Calves that become feet without taking an ankle break.

*Used in a sentence: "Look, Sue! Al is making a special anklet for your kankles! It's a kanklet!"

Yes. This is in fact what my feet and "kankles" look like. Notice the fingr print left in the top of my foot. It is terrible. I swear I used to actually have pretty cute feet. But you'd never know under the blimpie disguise. I told you that my water retention was ridiculous. I pretty much have this everywhere. It is AMAZING to me that my blood pressure is low. Me feet and hands go completely numb every day. If I posted a pic of my head on here, you'd think my head was going numb too. My face and nose are pretty much in the same boat... which is exactly why you do not see a picture of my face right now. :)

You poor thing! I hope you get some relief...soon! I have heard that soaking in epsom salt will help. The end is always the hardest, but you'll get through it. Love ya!

So Sorry honey that you have to deal with all of this. But it will be over soon. YEAH!!! The baby is going to come soon.

Oh, honey!!! I'm sorry... I was there before. BTW, it may get worse after you deliver. I swell even more, which I didn't think was possible, after I delivered. Hang in there, it's almost over and you'll have a baby in your arms to ease the pain.

When my sister was prego she ate fresh melon (canatalope, honeydew, watermelon, papaya) they are natural diuretics to reduce swelling.

I had the exact same thing with both of my pregnancies!!
It ended up being kind of a joke so I wouldn't get too depressed.
