First question is not so racy - will my calf muscles return to their normal size, once I'm not carrying all this extra weight? I'm athletic and all, but have never had such huge calves. They're not swollen or puffy, just massively muscular. I'm not doing anything to build them. In fact, I'm doing much less- I can't walk fast or far, let alone do cardio. Main complaint- I can't zip any of my sassy (expensive) boots.

Second (TMI ahead)- in the last week or so, my inner labia have become larger. They're not painful, just... more prominent. Is that a side effect of all the extra pelvic pressure/blood flow to the area? Or will I now have freak giant labia to match my freak giant calves?

calf muscle question I have no idea. I never had that happen to me. The labia question, yes it's just swollen right now, it will go back to normal.

Well, my legs are swollen and it sure is not muscle, LOL. Can't help you there. As for your other question -- I think it's pretty normal.

HAHAHAHA!!!! Love the second question. I feel like I have a balloon down there. I sat in front of the mirror the other day begging mine to go back to normal.Calves are huge too. So are boobs. Pretty much everything looks too big to be on my petite frame right now. DS told me I had to go on a diet because I looked to big.

LMBO! You are too funny. Yes, you should go back to normal down there, no idea about the legs, perhaps since you were in shape before, the swelling looks more muscular than swelling? Pregnancy does such strange things to our bodies and some things don't go back to normal...boo! But, in the end, totally worth it.

It's a side effect it'll get more swollen when you're pushing but it'll go back
