Really embarrased,but am 22 wks pregnant and had a check up at docs weds,found protein in sample but blood pressure ect fine.
Tonite,have found that both of the skin between my flaps[Sorry tmi} and leg is REALLY swollen,with what feels like a lump under right one.......
I thought maybe it was a stretch mark appearing but looked tonight and no sign of one....
What the hell could it be?

please don't stress too much. i'm sure it's nothing to do with the protein in your wee- honestly! could even be a spot brewing or a blocked hair follicle or something. I once went o a womens health clinic absolutely distraught because i had found a lump down there onlty to have the doctor say ' this? its a spot'!{grin] never felt so relieved in my life!
maybe go and see your mw tomorrow to put your mind at rest.

ebbie, I know you're going to sleep now so won't see this till morning but as an ex-midwife I can say this sounds like swollen blood vessels.
When you're pg all the hormones you release in your blood cause a general relaxation effect on veins, muscles etc. This is why it's much easier to injure yourself when pg. The lump could be a bulgy vein or just very dilute blood vessels (which may be less dilute and less palpable at other times). It's nothing to worry about and will go once you've given birth. Protein in your urine is okay if your blood pressure is fine.

Agree with aragon, could be a vaginal varicose vein caused by the pregnancy. Poor you.
