I believe in Bigfoot.

After having our baby I commented to my husband that he got taller.  Nope. I shrank. No more cute heels for this lady.  It's 'flats'-city as far as shoes for this new mom.  Hello sensible shoes!

I haven't chronicled my pregnancy from start to finish.  I was too busy 'in the moment' during that time.  Maybe I can tell my story in bits & pieces until it all comes together.  I didn't do a photo log of my progress either, maybe I should have?!  Oh well.

Anyway, back to the blog title: I believe in Bigfoot!  No, not the big hairy man-thing that people claim to have sightings of.  Big FOOT as in what happened to me as a result of pregnancy.

Prior to baby I was a size 6. Occasionally a size 6.5 in athletic shoes. Though I have been warned by those close to me that my foot size may change, I didn't really take stock in it.  Big mistake.  I actually bought a couple of pairs of shoes prior to becoming pregnant that are still un-worn.  I was just waiting for the right outfit, the right occasion, and just for the mood to strike.  So I am talking about quite a few pairs of brand new kicks in the closet! I did have swelling in my feet during the end of my pregnancy.  I thought though that for sure it would go away after baby arrived. I was wrong!  My foot actually grew a half to a full size bigger! I had to purchase a couple of pairs of shoes in size 6.5 and size 7.  Maybe my feet will return to it's original size?! Input please from those with experience.  Thank you. I am finding that I am able to wear more & more size 6.5's and the size 7's are starting to seem too large.  I don't think there is much hope for my brand new neglected size 6's though!  Good thing the Imelda Marcos infection didn't set in with me and I didn't go shoe crazy.  I have to find homes for my size 6's in case I can no longer return to my petite feet!  Once upon a time I would've ebay'ed them.  I just don't have the time or energy for that. Oh well. Let me think small feet thoughts and maybe magic will happen so my shoes will fit again.  That would be nice if I can believe in Cinderella and the shoe fitting instead of believing in Bigfoot!

I was going to wear these babies during spring or summer with a nice little dress (Oh don't get me started on what clothes don't fit!), jeans, or just as an everyday comfy flat.


Oh Well....I won't give up hope quite yet.  But maybe I need to brush up on my ebay skills just in case.  I feel another hobby coming on...


  1. well...I am glad to know that at least I am not the only one! :)
