Hi Alex. Im 32 weeks prego with bubs number 3 and HORRIFIED to discover i have varicose veins "down there". Im sore and swollen and feeling sorry for myself. I want to know if theres anything i can do to relieve the swelling? Or make them disapear forever??? haha. The baby is very low (my midwife checked him last week) she said he is sitting right down in my pelvis. Is it too early? Is it a sign he might come early? You can probably tell im working my self up a bit here... Besides being very uncomfortable im worried he might think hes ready to come out. Ive had a few uncomfortable braxton hicks but theyve gone away after i lie down for a while. Theyre quite strong but not painful maybey just a little ache? Thanks for your time... Joy.
