I noticed the other day that whenever I would wipe something just felt different. So I busted out my trusty handheld mirror and boy was I surprised at what I saw! I am swollen down there....no pain whatsoever, but everything just looks noticeably bigger than what it normally is! I know that is kind gross, but what the heck is going on? Please tell me after pregnancy this will go away!!! Anyone else notice this? I almost wish I wouldnt have looked, ignorance can be bliss!
Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!
LOL!! You're so funny sometimes!! Its normal! I've been swollen for a long time now, its from the increased blood volume.. thats why they say some women enjoy sex more while pregnant because of increased blood volume=increased sensitivity.. personally for me, it makes me feel tender.. but yes, it definitly goes away!
yes. As if that area isn't already rather unattractive (I mean, bodies are beautiful all over blah blah blah, and all that, but really, I don't think genitalia is attractive on either gender!) the swelling makes it seem even stranger looking.
And yes, wait 'til after birth. Just keep telling yourself "it will get better, it will get better" because it does, but in the moment that is hard to remember. I'm afraid of all of those feelings/fears again even though this is #2.
