Swelling...TMI

Sorry, this is TMI but I didn't experience it with my previous 3 pregnancies.
I noticed Friday after work that my lady parts felt irritated and like they were swollen and causing pressure. I investigated when I got home and sure enough things looked swollen. Plus my hemorrhoids were suddenly much larger. It seemed to get better by the next day but definitely not back to normal. DH and I dtd and things seemed to get irritated and swollen again. It seems to improve overnight but comes back to some extent once I'm up and moving. I'm thinking its just normal and due to increased blood flow but just wanted to see if any other mamas had similar experiences. I'm 25 weeks tomorrow.

Yup. All of the above. Not sure when mine started, but I remember being swollen and feeling HUGE down there, lol. It's normal.

Re: Swelling...TMI

I do that too...and it didn't start until baby #6. Being intimate def makes it worse. I also have some varicose veins that have popped up intermixed with the swelling too.

Yep. I noticed more swelling with my 3rd pregnancy. It got very irritating towards my due date. Thankfully it goes away .

A pregnancy support belt can help this. There are ones now that are like a bella band and virtually invisible under clothes.
