The past week or so my vulva has been swollen, and painful. Then today as I was getting ready to get in the bath I seen it in the mirror... I'm talking egg plant purple!<br><br>
It still hurts like a ... A hot bath didn't even make it feel better this time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Do they make things like compression hose for your girlie parts? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

There's got to be some sewing mama on here who could whip one of those up in no time... too bad she probably doesn't live close enough to you to take all of your measurements, sew it up, and hand it over before your babe is born! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Could you use something else? Let's see... seran wrap is stretchy and, because of its transparent nature, would allow you to easily and periodically do color 'check-ins', not to mention that if you sneeze and pee, it's leak-proof! Who needs a V2?!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

But it wouldn't be able to breathe! ... and imagine the puddle you'd have when you removed it from all the leakage! My body parts are going all to hell with this pregnancy. I've felt better this time around, but my body is falling apart.

Oh, I feel for you. I've been wearing the V2 supporter for over a month now and it's a lifesaver. I literally can't bear standing up for more than a couple minutes without it -- the pressure and swelling is so bad. I luckily didn't have to pay for mine (got it unused from my SIL), but it has helped so much I *would* have paid full-price for it.<br><br>
In lieu of that, I've heard that wearing snug cotton panties with an extra thick pad to kind of squish things up can help too, so you might want to try that. Good luck!

Or you could just do what I do and hold yourself constantly.....although people seem to frown on that when you do it in public.
