Oh Goodness! When I look at these pictures, I seriously don't know weather to laugh or cry real hard. Either way producing some serious tears! If you don't already know, I suffer from Vulvar Varicose Veins AND Varicose Veins in the legs....only....the suffering is pretty much contained to Pregnancy. They get worse with each child. So, for the next five or so months, I am in pain throughout the "hoo hoo" area, and in my legs. Not just little aches here and there, Pain. Swelling. Too much activity is no good. Lifting, bad idea. Intimacy, awful! Too much sitting around, not great but better. This, all in addition to regular pregnancy undesirables. I swore I would never be pregnant in the summer again. I guess things don't always happen as planned, leaving me to contemplate weather it is worth the investment to buy the MOTHER of all Granny Panties! I suffered with my other kids....should I do it again? Especially when I've decided this is my final pregnancy? These "Granny Panties" are called a V Brace made by Fembrace. They are supposed to remedy the pain through the vulva...which is way worse than the legs. But One pair.....75 to 80 BUCKS! Or you can get the "special"...2 for 100 Bucks! What to do?? Especially since I have found few testimonials on weather it really works. Of course, they would not be refundable. Also, how do you wear clothing over the top of these??? There is bulk everywhere??
So now I'm going to pose the question to all you Moms out there who: suffer, may have suffered, will suffer, or Do Not suffer from vulvar veins. What would you do??
I am pretty active in the summer, but I'm afraid if I just try to wait it out to the end I will just be a miserable mom to my three busy bodies.
