Hi all has anyone experienced this! I did say tmi so here goes, I was in the bath having a tidy up downstairs whilst I still can when I noticed I was extremely swollen! At the time
There was minimal pain and after looking in the mirror there was nothing unusual looking.. it's still swollen but not so much now.. and still minimal pain .. it gets worse after having sex aswell! I went to the doctors today and she didn't seem to be concerned.. done a urine test and all was ok .. a few white cells but nothing concerning to her! Has anyone ever had this? I'm worried that I should be worried about it x

Yes, I had this in previous preg! One side of my biff swelled right up, it looked terrifying, I was mortified but it went down within two days. My DP still jokes about it! No idea what caused it

You can get swollen varicose veins in your groin in pregnancy. I never got them myself but it's very common. A woman I worked with had them. That could be it.

My bits went really puffy from about 32 weeks with DD2 (hadn't with DD1). Midwife said it was normal, just from the weight of the bump adding pressure in the area. Now 8 weeks postpartum and back to normal (after swift vaginal birth of 8lb5oz baby at 39 weeks).
