April Fools!

Four years ago today I was due with my baby boy!

Kevin was wonderful while I was pregnant. He brought me flowers~

And made wonderful food for me... in bed!! Mmm, seafood salad sandwich!

We walked in the park and
I watched as my feet puffed up over my shoes... lovely cankles too~

But alas, our boy did not come. What a cruel April Fool's prank, shame on you Mother Nature!

Hey, that's EXACTLY what my feet and ankles look like right now! Well, minus the pretty toes. Mine are all skank.
So, when DID Nova come?

Justine :o )

Emer said...

At least your toes looked pretty! And that's a very lovely picture of you in the gown--almost looks like a simple wedding dress.

I agree with Emer,that gown is gorgeous!
I have to say tho,I don't think I could have eaten a seafood salad sandwich at any point while I was pregnant with either of my children.

You look lovely in your gown <3

Wow! You even looked good pregnant. I am so impressed by you. And my friend didn't call puffed feet and ankles 'cankles' when she was having her baby, she called them Flintstone feet. :) But your's are much prettier than Fred's. xxoo

You look gorgeous, Nikki. How thoughtful of Kevin too. My feet looked something like yours when I was pregnant with my first.

Memories of pregnancy --- April 1 would have been an exciting birthday! I guess God had other plans. I was always ready for my babies to be born long before they thought so! How I remember those puffy feet --- yup --- not fun!

Great post!

Hi Nikki,
I have been looking through your blog trying to find a source for Marie Antoinette shoes. I figured, hey if there is a girl out there who knows the source it would be your.
However I really don't think they are the shoes for pregnant feet. lol
I hope you can help me.

Oh girl, my ankles and feet were so swollen like that too when I was pregnant...honey, I remember none of my shoes fitting!
How neat that Nova was born on April Fool's day! Kevin was a sweetheart...oh, that sandwich looks yummy too...I haven't had my lunch yet! LOL! That's the next thing I'm gonna go do! LOL!
Hope you have a great week!
Big hug,
