Hi ,
TMI here I'm sure , but i ned to ask .........
This evening i have felt discomfort in my vulva area , which i can only liken to having remnants of bikini wax sticking hair together and getting a pulling trapped sensation . I have had a look and i am quite swollen on one side of my vaginal lips ?
I am 40 + 1 pregnant , and today i had a tummy scan , internal scan and internal/sweep . Is all this linked ? Why am i feeling this discomfort ? I've heard something about getting veins 'down there' is this what is happening ? although i can't see any ?
Thanks

Hi

it will all be due to your scan and internal today. You have a lot more fluid going through your body at the moment and it is a big job for your body to move all of that fluid around as effectively as before you were pregnant, so swelling like this is ok
I'm sure it will go soon but you may find it happens on and off until dlivery. Speak to your GP or midwife if it is really painful or causing you problems

Take care x
