Has anyone gotten them while preggers? My 1st time around I had one on my inner thigh, it did not go away after pregnancy. Now w/my 2nd pregnancy I've gotten one on my groin and it hurts! Just wondering if anyone else has been in the same boat and what you did to relieve it? I ordered the special maternity hose and am waiting on them to arrive. I'm also elevating my feet more. I just don't understand why I'm getting them during pregnancy. I'm not overweight or stand/sit for too long of a period. :( I'd love any helpful feedback. Thanx!

  • My sister got them pretty bad the second pregnancy too. She got total relief from the compression hose. As soon as she had her baby they pain disapeared.

  • I got one in the groin area when I was pregnant the second time. It was VERY painful. I just stayed off my feet as much as possible.
