The appointment went well. No gestational diabetes, no iron anemia, my blood pressure is an enviable 94/62. The swelling in my legs, ankles and feet, however, is really very bad, but the OB said that some women just swell more than others and to put up my feet for several hours a day. The tops of my feet can be molded like playdough. :smileysad: After a long day and then my stepson's Little League game last night, my ankles were so swollen they actually hurt. I'll make it, though. Only 13 weeks to go!!

Can you maybe get an advanced student to do some of your walking during class to help you out? I'm glad the administrators are looking out for you too. :)

My administrators have said to stay seated to teach as much as I need to. But I teach high schoolers and they can be ...needy of attention. Also, I teach biology and I need to always walk around during labs. I'm on Spring break right now and my swelling is WAY down since I'm not standing 7hrs a day. I look almost normal!

Yay for a good appt, but I'm so sorry about the swelling. Boo... can the school make any accommodations for while you're at work?

Sounds like a great appt! So sorry about the swelling though, that does not sounds fun! I hope you are able to get your feet up during the day to minimize the pain!
