TMI but someone please help

This is my second child but I don't remember having it with my first... maybe I did though?

I'm 32 weeks pregnant and feel like my vaginal area is bulging! Its most noticeable when I sit on the toilet but I can feel it sitting down on a chair or even standing a little bit... not as much though. Is this normal or should I worry about prolapse of some sort?

Oy, it is likely normal. I had it with my last pregnancy (my 3rd) but NOT with my first 2. It was SO annoying and uncomfortable.

There is a name for it. . . I can't remember . . .basically your ligaments are too loose and can't hold your pubic bone in, or something like that. I had it only a few weeks ago, too. I'm 37 weeks now and it went away.

I am just starting to feel that way too. I sit on the toilet to go to the bathroom and am scared to push in fear of having a baby or something I am 29 weeks with my second. I did get it with my first, but not until later.

I've also heard about people having varicose veins there causing a lot of swelling and feeling of pressure.

Very normal! I've had that for every pregnancy. I'm 22 weeks with #7 and I've been swelling for about 3 weeks now. I have very big babies, so I blame mine on that. TMI- I don't like to "spend time" with the hubs in the AM because I will be swollen until lunch, throbbing somethings. I can't get anything done around the house like that!

I can relate with that! Even resorted to an ice pack once or twice....

I found it helped to wear pantyhose on the days when it was worst. Kind of kept everything snug and supported.
