I've had the same, it makes sex quite uncomfy to say the least....blush. I think it's normal for some ladies, im sure someone else will be on here in a minute with a reason but i suspect its hormones, everything is to do with hormones!

Re: everything falling out - is there a chance baby might have dropped already? Mine dropped around 30 weeks and I had the weird things falling out feeling when I walked. At 38 weeks Im convinced I'm leaking something all the time and paranoia has me perched on blankets wherever I sit in the house...

Varicosity? Not a nice possibility.

I was very swollen last time round and it became very painful to walk very far etc. happy to say there were no long term effects whatsoever and it just went away after the birth. I quite often felt like I'd received a swift kick to the vag tho, tried to explain it to mw and she just rolled her eyes. Charming.

I'm exactly the same - I am so so swollen I feel like I have acquired testicles confused. I asked my GP and seems its normal and the only advice was to lie down as much as possible as its gravity is pushing blood into the groin area. I hate moaning about it as I am so grateful to be pregnant but I find it hard to enjoy being pregnant when one minute I've a bad case of thrush and itch like hell and the next I have swollen lips hanging down. Oh the joys of pregnancy but it will hopefully be worth it in the end.
