I'm having a lot of fun with this this morning: they weighed Casey a little while ago and she has gained 67 pounds since the pregnancy began. She tipped the scales at 182.4 which means she officially weighs more than I do...ha!!
She has gained over 12 pounds in the week since we've been here at the hospital. Unfortunately, most of that is fluid that she is retaining which has chosen to settle in her legs. Her legs are ballooned up like you wouldn't believe. She has a roll on both ankles and her calves are stretched so tight they feel like watermelons. The funny thing is that she has not a bit of stubble despite going more than a week without shaving because her legs are so puffy.
This is one of the many discomforts that Casey is dealing with along with everything else that she's faced over the last few months. Of course, as with most everything else, very little can be done to relieve her. But she keeps on smiling through it all...AMAZING!!
