  • Totally normal. There is a lot of pressure and extra blood flow going on down there. I even had burst capilaries that felt like little bumps on my outter labia. FREAKED ME OUT because I thought I had herpes or something! lol

  • then its probably the same thing. its just when there is less blood flow because the baby is on that part of you. like when you wrap a rubber band around your finger it swells a little and turns colors and then starts to hurt. It isnt a bad thing GOOD LUCK !!!
    Your closer then me.

  • LOL, if you read Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy (which I highly recommend!), she refers to it as "blue twinkies." Mention it at your next checkup just to be sure, but you're probably ok. :)
