Well, I'm 19 weeks along now, technically 19 1/2 but hey who's counting. Although it may not look like it from the picture, I'm certainly getting bigger and bigger and things are becoming more difficult and uncomfortable for me to do. Simply putting my shoes and socks on is VERY uncomfortable and I'm sure it's only going to get worse!! While I can't get away from wearing socks, I have found my most favorite, comfortable pair of shoes and, Praise the Lord, they are slip ons!!
