with a mirror of course, I can't see over my belly My entire vaginal area has been very swollen for well over a month now. I haven't bothered to look until tonight I DEFINITELY have vulvar/vaginal varicosities (varicose veins). It is CRAZY!!! WAY worse than I thought it was. Good thing is....its normal, should (fingers and toes crossed) go away after baby is here, and it is not painful, just uncomfortable.
Thanks for letting me share. DH is at the fire station and I didn't think I should call him there at 10:30 at night to share my discovery with him
LOL!! You are so funny - I never had them until my last pregnancy, they got sore twoards the end but otherwise were just annoying. I am getting them againt his pregnancy as well - but thankfully they went away last time so I am guessing they will go away again this time. It did take awhile though - like 6 months if I remember right before I couldn't see or feel them. Pregnancy does some odd things to our bodies sometimes - when I first got them I was sooo upset thinking they'd not go away - am glad I was wrong!
I'm scared to look too I know it's swollen from what I can see in the mirror before I take a shower, but that's about the extent of what I want to know

The last part totally made me laugh. Would gave your hubby something to chuckle at I'm sure! I don't look down there so I have no idea what it looks like, though I'm sure I'd be too scared while pregnant and after when i KNOW it's super swollen!
Yeah, I'm definitely swollen and I'm purple. lol

I am wondering if I have the samething going on! I have been very very swollen down there, and I feel a lot of discomfort when wiping, and lots of preasure/pain when walking. I also cant see that far over my belly, but I can feel the swelling. hmmm....
