    It's quite normal in general in pregnancy. Don't know whether a late onset might have anything to do with labour or not. It's just all the extra blood glow really.

    Yup, extra blood flow and pressure of the baby's head pressing downwards :)

    The extra fluid you find around your ankles, hands etc when pregnant can also end up around your labia. So it could simply be oedema :)

    Doesn't mean labour is coming! I've had this for 2-3 weeks now...

    just like other areas in pregnancy there is excess fluid - tis why we can get swollen feet, ankles, calfs, hands, face etc

    I have this too! I mentioned it to my mum and she said she had it and was told it was veins swelling from the pressure of baby pressing down x

    I've had swelling for.. I don't even know how long. It literally feels like I've been trying to have sex dry or something. Annoying when I wipe!

    Mine's down to varicose veins down there :( only swells when I stand/sit upright so for me it's due to the uterus pressing on a vein
