I hope this isn't tmi!!
I'll just get right to it. The left side of my labia is VERY swollen during the day (it goes away at night, but as soon as I stand up in the morning, I can feel pressure in that area), to the point that it looks really distorted. I had this in my first pregnancy as well but it didn't ever get this bad, was not this uncomfortable, and didn't begin until probably early in the third trimester. I asked my ob about it (with my ds), and before taking a look, she said "it's probably a swollen vein", so I'm assuming it's relatively common. That is what it ended up being, but it never got this bad! I am currently 16 weeks, and I've had it for probably 3 weeks or so already. I can't imagine what it'll be like when I'm 40 weeks!
Does anybody else have this? If so, any tips on how to relieve the discomfort?
