I had a large-ish collection of heels. Ok, I’ll admit, i had a large-ish collection of most kinds of shoes. Life as a shoe (and handbag) collector was good. Until my first pregnancy in 2007.
Gasp. Shock. Horror. A few days before I found out I was pregnant, I bought a gorgeous pair of black heels that I never got to wear. I threw away all my heels, convinced that my life was over because I was having a baby. My feet got bigger. I went up to a size 6. None of my shoes fit. It was heart breaking.
My son is now 5 and I’m still a 6. But… I bought 2 new pairs of pumps the other week and they’re starting to feel a little cramped in the toe area. I don’t think I can cope going up to a size 7. I really don’t.
So what I want to know is: what size were you before you fell pregnant? Did you go back to your pre-pregnancy foot size? Have you had more than one pregnancy? Did your feet get progressively bigger with each one?
I’m dying here. Seriously. I can deal with stretch marks. I can deal with cankles. I can deal with water retention. But my feet getting bigger?
Save me! Tell me this is not happening!
