This is more of a lament…I’m looking for some sympathy from anyone who loves high heels or just flashy, pretty shoes.
We’re in the process of moving to a new apartment that will be better suited for Baby (I’m just over 18 weeks pregnant). This means that I’ve been going through my shoe collection and purging (in order to donate) shoes that I no longer wear. I found a pair of shoes that I haven’t worn in ages, but I’m pretty sure I pranced around in them right before I got pregnant. They have back straps, a peep toe, high heel and are a purplish black colour. They are fun.
They don’t fit. I mean, I could wear them, but I’m not a fan of the “squashed foot in shoe” look. I had a good laugh, but really, I’m also kind of sad. lol My boobs have gone up a whole cup size already (I’m now a G!) and I had size 10 feet BEFORE the pregnancy. I wasn’t expecting this to happen so soon or at all, really. I’ve struggled most of my life to be okay with being taller and just generally bigger than a lot of women, but this has sort of thrown me for a loop.
In other news: my DH’s face was a picture when I told him that I would just have to start a whole new shoe collection after the baby is born. LOL

This makes me not want to have kids… because I have a shoe collection of over 100 shoes. And to not be able to wear them while pregnant is gonna be enough of a heart ache, but to also not be able to wear them after will kill me! I love my shoes! haha
I like the idea of starting a new collection postpartum though!

I’m SO glad that I’m not the only one. Shoe misery loves company, I guess.
@zippylef: GAH! Here’s hoping you’ll be rocking the heels soon!

As a fellow show lover, I would keep those babies. They will probably fit again after baby. 🙂
For those gals who haven’t been pregnant, not everyone’s feet changes size. Mine haven’t, and a bunch of my friends didn’t either. Everyone’s body is different 🙂
I’m a high heel gal myself, and thank my lucky stars that my heels still fit. People keep asking me how long I’m going to wear my heels (I’m 25 weeks now) and I tell them I’ll take them off in the delivery room :).

I’m almost 30 weeks along and as long as my feet aren’t swelling, I still fit in all my shoes. I’m hoping there isn’t a size change in the home stretch! In any case, OP, there is a good chance that your feet will go back to their original size post partum, fingers crossed for you!
@Miss Root: Good for you wearing your heels through pregnancy! I just can’t be bothered and have stuck to my flats for the past 10 weeks or so. I would love to wear my heels, but on the other hand I just can’t bring myself to prop my extra 10 kilos atop them 😉

@chastenet: I should add that I sit at a desk all day long, and so I’m not on my feet much. If I had to walk around more, I’d be in flats too 😉
Oh! I forgot to add- my friend whose feet did get bigger (as in, she could barely wear shoes, her poor feet were so swollen), her feet went right back to her normal size after baby was born. So don’t get rid of your favorite shoes!
