I am 31w3d and for the last week or so I have problems with discomfort in my groin area. Mostly where your underwear sits in against your legs and then in towards and including my labia. Initially I thought it was poor fitting underwear but then I wore a pair that were like boxer briefs and therefore didn't rub there at all. It was pretty bad that day too. When I looked (with a mirror) the area between my legs and labia is very red with a pale line right on the muscle (well I think it is a muscle there!!!).
My labia are pretty puffy at the outer area and the inner area is really discoloured...almost purple-ish blue.
I had none of this with ds other than the pain caused by his head pressing down. Is this normal? Is it a problem? Any suggestions, besides soft gel ice packs to help?
