One of the things that is really annoying during pregnancy is a combination of heavy legs, leg pain, swelling, and varicose veins. In my case I just have heavy legs and swelling – but that didn’t stop my doctor and midwife to put me on medical compression stockings – Sigvaris. So I had to wake up super early and be at the apothecary, give my measurements before my legs swell up – and in 3 days have my stockings.
Well. Here’s the annoying part. If you are wearing them on weekdays early in the morning – it fits (ok till midday when you think your bra is the last thing you wish to burn compared to these devil traps for legs and belly!) Then on weekends when you try to fit into them – for an afternoon walk – you can’t even put 3 toes through those! So now I asked for a new pair for weekend. At this point my bra feels less trap-like for my boobies than my leg-in! A true Booby Trap!
