    Sorry for the TMI, but i've noticed that vulva/ inner labia whatever is a lot fatter than it used to be. It's not irritated but definitely bigger. Is this normal due to increased blood supply?

    Thanks! x

    Yes but its hard to tell it between normal or thrush. For me it was thrush, but as always i never got the other symptoms, just the swelling so maybe try some canesten just in case?

    Yea it looks funny, I just shaved and even on top of my pubic bone looks like it's got fatter, haha. Funny as I haven't put on any weight anywhere besides my bump and there! x

    Yeah mines gross. I'd not really noticed until I tried having a bit of a tidy up down there this week with the trimmers. Its bad enough being swollen and huge everywhere else. I now have a 'puffy muff' as well!

    This thread made me giggle lol. Im the same way and i believe its from the extra blood supply. After i had DD i immediately noticed a change, it felt like i had a vaginal reconstruction lol.. So small! Lol. So yeah im looking forward having the baby and being back to normal.
