    I have had some swelling on one side ( down south :blush:)
    and I though I might have an infection for cyst or something , turns out believe it or not its varicose veins.
    omg how do you get those - there??
    anyway nothing will help it, only resting on your left side ( uhuh...)
    and it will get worse until I deliver then there will be some relief.

    well at least its not an infection. :dohh:

    it wasnt pain as such i just noticed one side was really swollen, maybe it was when i was wiping from using the bathroom , i cant remember. then it started to get a bit worse and even a bit uncomfortable to walk like basically something between my legs.
    so i had a look (tmi) and it was so swollen like 3 x the size of the other side.
