Does anyone else have these, or am I just a freak? I didn't get them with the first preg. I did with the second, but I just figured it was because I didn't get back into shape, and my body hadn't had a chance to recover before I got pregnant again. Well, this time it was over 5 yrs before I got preggo again, but I got them anyway! For the most part, they do not bother me too much yet. But if I am on my feet (like shopping) or if DH and I are intimate, they really ache and hurt. So, can anyone commiserate? Is there anything I can do? They do seem to go away like the same day the babies are born, so I know I only have 3 months to deal with them, but they are annoying all the same. BTW, I have never had hemorhoids, or varicosities in my legs, so I totally atribute the vulvar ones to the huge unnecessary episiotomy that I had with my first.
