Vaginal swelling and pain 27 weeks pregnant

I'm having a lot of vaginal swelling and pain that's been going on for weeks now. When I stand for awhile the pain starts. Tonight the swelling and pain seems to be worse. Is this normal? Why exactly is this happening? It almost feels like I'm having my baby right now because there's so much pressure!!!

  • You might want to call your ob or midwife to be on the safe side. It could be a few different things.

  • I have an ob appointment tomorrow, but what kinds of things could it be?

  • I'm 32 weeks but for the past few weeks have had this to some extent and my midwife said its normal esp if its your 2nd baby. It's the pressure of the baby pushing down as my baby is sitting low. I would still ask though for peace of mind.
