Oh no! My feets are growing!

One of my biggest (and silliest) fears of pregnancy is that my feet would grow a 1/2 size to a full size larger. Apparently this is pretty common and I've talked to quite a few new moms that this has happened to. I don't care about having bigger feet (current size is 7 1/2 or 8) but I LOVE my current shoe collection. No pair cost more than $50 probably, but I have amassed a glorious group of boots, patterned flats and cute heels that I do not want to part with.

But, it already appears that my feet are no longer as comfy in my size 8s. It really sucks! Luckily it's still warm enough for flip flops for now - but I will seriously cry if I lose my shoes forever. It's vain and materialistic, yes, but it'll be hard and costly to replace all the shoes I have. Here's hoping this is just a pregnancy thing and my feet will transform back to their former state after baby!

On the bright side, I will be able to buy new shoes if I really can't wear mine anymore. It's just too bad that after baby, my shoe shopping time will be greatly reduced!


  1. Oh, no! I don't think it's vain. I mean, you're right. It's a huge expense, and when you love a pair of shoes, you don't want to lose them! I've worried about that, too, for different reasons. I'm a size 10, so if my feet get any larger, it will just be embarrassing. I already look like a hobbit! Be thankful yours aren't enormous like mine, but losing a shoe collection is sad regardless!

  2. Linds, your shoes are tighter now because you have gained weight. When you lose your weight after Lila is born, your feet should get back to your regular size. Not to worry.
