ok, this is Sunday so i can't go for office visit til tomorrow. called the dr on call and he said this sounded like a vericose vein in there but i am still doubtful.<br>
first of all, i think i have a yeast infection on the inside. i am 29 wks pg with my third child, all two years apart. so my muscles aren't that tight yanno? i have had a vein in my labia so far. i have had some itching and a sensation that "something" was between my legs. i got a mirror and checked it out. when i parted things and looked, there is some type of "something" that is obviously flesh, and it is blocking my vagina about a 1/2 the way up. i tried to poke at it and move it but it is hard as a rock and will not move. even freaked my husband out.<br><br>
anyone had anything like this?

Actually, I haven't had this experience...but my grandmother had something similar happen. She is old and had 4 children (all totally knocked out baby-extraction kind of births) and lives by herself...she didn't want to have to deal with a Dr. so she was just "living with it" and she started having pain and a similar bulging sensation. She finally had my cousin, who was training to be an EMT, check it out, and Nancy had her go in and check it out right away. By the time she got it looked at, her pelvic floor had pretty much fallen and her internal organs were pressing through.<br><br>
Your situation could be very different, but if it is the same I'd get it checked out first thing on Monday, just because the long term implications of pelvic floor problems are severe, and if it is something else (like your bladder) poking through than it could be really serious <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Have you ever done pelvic floor exercises/Kegel exercises? If you have, this is probably something totally different...but your post sounded so familiar to what happened to my grandmother that I had to share the info I had.<br><br>
Hope you can get it checked out and treated soon, and please let us know what they say! Someone else may need this benefit of your experience in the future!<br><br>
Good luck and health hugs!

It sounds like what I had...a prolapse. It happened at 15 wks.I actually had my uterus prolapse (come down) into my vagina. It could also perhaps be a cytocele. In any case do your pelvic floor exercises and don't lift heavy things. I was fine and I went on to have a beautiful freebirth (not planned exactly). But I did have some discomfort, not pain, just discomfort.<br><br>
Nothing goes back to the way it was after childbirth and pregnancy, but you can think preventative if you can do your Kegels.

hey!<br>
well it is nothing pretty but nothing bad either. the baby is pressing on my bladder and my bladder is pressing hard on my vaginal walls/pelvic floor. basically just pressure of baby and nothing i can do. my mw had a name for it that started with a c but i don't remember it. anyway, she said i might have discomfort with it some days and some days not even notice it. she was suprised i haven't had it happen before now, evidently it is common in several pgcies, especially when they are close together.<br><br>
thanks for all the info!

Was the "c" word cytocele? That's what I had too.<br><br>
Yes I have also heard it was common in women with multiple pregnancies.<br><br>
