My weirdest pregnancy symptom...

I have no scientific backing for this statement, but multiple tests run by yours truly have proven it: pregnancy improves your aim. I can throw a piece of paper into a trash can from across the room. I have even tossed things over my shoulder without looking and made it in. I stunned the Pretend Husband the other day by lobbing something into the garbage from three-point range. I can't miss!

So, while my ankles are swollen to the point of non-existence and I can't remember my own name half the time, I have some mad basketball skills to fall back on. I'm thinking of creating a team of pregnant women and petitioning the WNBA for admission.

Either it's because your center of gravity has shifted, or because you now have the primal need to be able to accurately aim the back of your hand upside an unruly child's head.

I'M KIDDING, I don't think it's the smacking one.

Don't you love cankles?! I had the biggest cankles every when pregnant but I am happy to report, they do go away so never fear, you will have lovely slender ankles once more!
