Get them up! Way up!

26 weeks, 2 days pregnant
The difference between putting your feet up, and not putting your feet up? Well, it’s the difference between having cankles — or tree-trunks — and normal-looking ankles.
My mom has been insisting I put my feet up for weeks, and I have only listened occasionally. Most of the time, I’m busy sewing or painting or doing something while I watch TV, so my feet are flat on the carpet.
However, in two easy evenings, I learned that putting my feet up is now … very necessary.
Sunday evening: Did not put feet up. Did not have ankle bones.
Monday evening: Put feet up (exactly like the above photo). Had ankle bones.
If only all lessons were this easy to learn!
