Okay, this is my first pregnancy, so I am no expert, but I am definitely swollen down there and might have some varicose veins even. Yikes TMI! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I asked my OB about it and she said that she believes that there's a reason that pregnant women can't see past their belly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have been swollen really bad down there. I think it was worse at the begining of my pregnancy or either I have just gotten used to it by now. I read it was normal though because of an increase of blood flow.<br><br>
I don't recall if it was that way with previous pregnancies because I was not really that intune with my body back then.<br><br>
And FYI for anyone who has noticed a massive ammount hair down there, I also read that hair grows faster to protect your insides from germs. I try to trim as much as I can but like everyone else I can't see down there. lol

OH yeah, swollen as all get out. Someone on another thread mentioned she feels like a virgin during DTD. I feel that way sometimes too!<br><br>
Carlito's Wife, interesting about the hair! I'm not a shaver, but was just saying to DP that it seems to me like it's insanely long, and he agreed, I might actually trim it a bit!

Wow, you guys are kind of getting me excited about the swollen on the inside thing. I was reffering to being swollen on the outside. I don't know about my insides. DH has been in Iraq the whole pregnancy but he would be quite pleasently supprised when he comes home in few days on R&R if I am swollen in there too. When I try to check my cervix sometimes I think it is a bit swollen in there but I have no idea what it was really like in there before I got pregnant this time.<br><br>
I am guessing this is the reason people say sex is so great while you are pregnant. Can't wait to find out lol.
