  • umm no its very really normal to have itching down there. u may have a yeast infection very common in pregnancy i got them alot in my first pregnancy. go to ur doctor even if u have no discharge u could still have a yeast infection. but get it confermed by ur doctor asap because u can cause problems for baby during delivery if u dont get it taken care of.

  • It's quite normal. Towards the end of your pregnancy you vagina can become swollen from the added pressure of the baby dropping. Mine was so puffy and swollen I had to wait a minute or two just to be able to pee! From being swollen it did get pretty itchy down there... However, if you notice a discoloured (yellow, green) discharge or a strange aroma, let your doctor know- it could be signs of an infection.

  • Normal or not, it needs to be addressed with the dr or nurse. Give them a call and have them make a decision about it. You may need some medication to clear it up.

  • It is normal, like littlemrsmarcel said, as long as there isn't any wierd discharge. I had the same thing, and thought it was an infection. But everything was fine. And it went away after giving birth.
