Did anyone else get a really big bulging vein down there when you were pregnant? Does it go away completely after the babys born?

  • i gotta a few BIG ones down there honey so dont worry. Thay do go away. With my daugher i had them and my doc said each pregnancy you tend to get them earlier and earlier. Dont worry they do go away!

  • Oh poor dear! They are varicose veins and while it is not common to get them on/around your vulva, it does happen. My doctors said he sees about 2 or 3 a year. Mine were HORRIBLE!! It hurt to even roll out of bed in the later stages of pregnancy (lets not even talk about sex). I had to have counter pressure by wearing tight maternity undies (yep, the big ones.) There isn't anything you can do to prevent them, it is because of the extra blood your body is producing. It took a little over a month for mine to go away completely after the delivery. I feel for you! PRAISE GOD that pregnancy is only nine months!!!!
