Definition - cankle - An obese or otherwise swollen ankle that blends into the calf without clear demarcation.

Come on ladies...I can't be the only one that has them...by the end of the day, I really am not sure where my ankle ends and my calf begins!!! Just another joy of pregnancy. LOL!

So far, I've been lucky. But I'm sure that once the weather warms up here and I start getting more heat flashes, it will start. Right now, my hands swell up every time I'm even a little warm. I hate it.

No cankles for me - My ankles would have to get huge to get cankle status - I have naturally curvy legs - so hopefully my ankles dont get that big

My hands have started to swell too...my rings are getting tight...my ankles would swell naturally, not to cankle status, but they have always gotten swollen when I'm on them a lot...seems pregnancy has just made it worse.

my hands do swell. They are not constantly swollen but throughout the day will get hot and start to swell a bit. When it's really warm (like in the bleachers at the basketball game a few weeks ago) I get "hot dog fingers" lol
