    had mw check up this morning and asked her about the discomfort/pain down below, that ive been having over last couple of weeks. talk about learning something new every day!!! turns out the reason i feel so sore, swollen and bruised down there is because...................i have a varicose vein down there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i never saw that coming i can tell you!i had no idea you could get them there, apparantly all i can do is keep weight off(how when im nearly 6 mths!?!?!?!) and wear support knickers like you would support tights.
    Even DH was stunned when i told him(mind you then he started laughing!)

    helen, the poor man will be scarred for life after witnessing childbirth, i'll not make him look at this!lololol i can just about manage, have also got serious support knickers now, sort of helping but it just seems to flare up so easily(ie i dont have to stand for long).

    keep remindong myself this will be worth it in june when this bub is put in my arms for the first time!!xx
