Just this afternoon, I was really anxious because when I look down, I realized that my 2 feet are really blowing up! As in, parang pumuputok talaga sa suot ko na shoes! I can’t even feel the bone sa may ankle ko.
I noticed too that when I pressed a particular part of my foot, it turns red then white.
Hay, then it struck me, minamanas na yata ako! I texted my hubby immediately.
I told him, kadiri yung feet ko. My feet looked like an elephant’s feet. Jumbo talaga! Hay… 🙁
My colleagues confirmed that minamanas na ako.
Nakukuha daw ang manas sa maalat na food. I don’t even eat junk foods anymore. How come?
Then, another realization came. This week, thrice ako nag eat out. Maybe, the restaurants mixed a lot of salt and MSG in the food that they served.
They say normal lang sa buntis ang pamamanas, it will go away after I give birth. Sabi rin ng isang aunt ko, normal din na on my 7th month, mag start na ang pamamanas.
What I have to do now is elevate my feet when I sleep. Avoid salty foods even more. And drink plenty of water.
I guess, this is really part of my pregnancy, so be it!
