After two successful pregnancies, from which I emerged unscathed (boobs excepted)- I'm now 21 weeks into my third pregnancy and from very early on I have felt like my bits were a foot long and half a foot wide (as if Ive got two weeks to go...I literally feel as though I could squat down and have the baby right now...). On closer inspection (not pleasant...)The veins just inside my lala are prominent and raised. My concern is will this get much worse after a few hours of pushing baby out? I'm well aware of the likely hood piles but I've never heard of varicose veins any where else other than legs.... Can anyone shed any light on this attractive problem??
Hi yes you can and luckily they go away after delivery (in most cases anyway). I think they are called vulval varises or simelar. I know a few people who had them and they caused no probs at the birth aqnd went afterwards. Believe they can throb though.
