deformed "lips"

I noticed yesterday that my two "lips" in the neather regions are not normal. Well one is but the other one is bigger and hangs down a bit and is kinda lumpy looking. Can you "lips' get hernias during pregnancy? This never occured with my first.

Could be from vericose vein? I had two RL friends that were preggo at same time(due within weeks of each other)and they both has problems with VV in the region. Theirs were painful though. I don't know if that's criteria to classify it as VV.

If not VV, then probably just general swelling.

I'm thinking probably just generalized swelling. And I'm with the other ladies I couldn't see my stuff down there if I tried! Maybe ask your doctor/midwife about it.

if you think its swollen now.... wait till you give birth!!! I was SO SHOCKED when I saw myself in the mirror a couple hours after delivery!! Everything went back to normal though.

Almost everyone is asymmetrical down there. There are alot of veins in there too where blood can pool and make one side seem even larger. It will go back and its TOTALLY NORMAL!!

Mine are swollen (so my DH says, I can barely see down there to pee in a cup at my doc visits), which is normal. I don't think they are assymetrically swollen, but I'm sure that can happen. Ah, the joys of being pregnant!

THIS! LOL

I refuse to even TRY to look down there these days. I don't want to see swelling, veins, stretch marks, etc. I am pretended that I never change down there. Smile

Has anyone read Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs?!?!? It's hilarious!

She calls them her Blue Twinkies b/c of the swelling & bluishness (not I word I know) from the veins.

I am uber sexual this pregnancy & I am wearing out my older SO, Ed. Anyways, when I tell him I need him & he gives me a look like, "again?" I just say, "what?!? I'm engorged!!" lol. He thinks it's so funny.

I'm in agreement with the other girls on here when I ask how can you see down there?!?! I can barely even shave down there anymore, I have to guess at what I'm doing lol! Anyway, I have never had this problem myself. Are you in any pain? I would for sure ask your OB about it...

I made the most pitiful attempt EVER yesterday, it was so bad. I have to go back and have him do it over. I got like part of the top centimeter.

Last pregnancy I tried to get DH to do that and he wouldn't because he was afraid of cutting me. Maybe we should all start getting waxed. LOL Actually there is no way I could do that. Too embarrassing IMO. And talk about the pain! OUCH.

That would be the better solution if my skin didn't hate me so bad for it.

Mine are asymetrical and swollen too.

How I know- I have DH hold a mirror while I do some touch up shaving down there before my dr. visits. Talk about true love LOL. He did it last pregnancy too after I kept cutting myself.
