So, I've heard that when you're pregnant, you shouldn't wear heels because the hormones that relax your tendons and ligaments all over cause your joints to become less reliable. But I like my heels, and I have a hard time finding flats that I feel are dressy enough for church, so I've still been wearing them. Specifically, today I was wearing these. Now, for the record, these are apparently devil shoes. They were fine the first few times I wore them, but then they started giving me blisters on my toes. I've been determined to either break them in or toughen up my feet, though, so I wore them this morning. They have upped the stakes now, though, by bucking me off.
I twisted my ankle pretty badly. Just walking down the hallway from sacrament meeting to Sunday school, of course—nothing fancy. I even had my arm around Kyle's waist at the time (fortunately), which kept me from actually falling. Well, that and the wall. But I completely rolled my left ankle off that shoe (all 3" of it!), and it's not in fabulous shape now. I haven't hurt my ankles that badly since I was dancing!
Fortunately, like I said, Kyle was there, and my friend Sarah. And then my visiting teacher walked by and hailed her husband to assist Kyle in getting me to the foyer (while Kyle pulled the car around) and then to the car. I iced it for a few hours after we got home, and the pain is a lot better. It's not very swollen, either, which is great. So hopefully I'll be able to walk normally again in a few days? Sarah says I can't wear heels anymore, though.

I can't wear any kind of shoe that's raised off the ground. Heels, wedges, platforms - I fall over.
Ouch, that sounds painful! You could try the RICE method if it's still hurting-- Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate. Just make sure you put a towel or something in between the ice pack and your skin and ice on and off for 20 minutes at a time. 🙂
