Swelling TMI

I am in my 8th month of pregnancy and last night while shaving (down there) I noticed swelling and color change (lips) I know this is TMI but I was wondering if anyone else noticed this when pregnant and if its normal.

  • OH YEAH! mine looked like a predator ready to attack something.. it was horribly disgusting.. it goes back to normal a couple months after you deliver. I'm not looking forward to that again. only positive thing was I was horny all the time and for once in my life, was able to have multiple orgasms!

  • It's due to increased fluids and blood. It's normal. But if the swelling is bright red or blue/purple, you might have varicose veins. Stay off your feet as much as possible, but don't sit for long periods of time, either. Lie on your side whenever you can, and get up and change your position at least once an hour.
