Oh hon, I wish I could help. Try and wear compression hose as much as you can, I know a friend of mine who is pregnant with me has them all over and she swears by the sexy compression hose. Hers goes along the area and on her belly, etc. Your OB will definitely want to keep an eye on it so nothing clots. Best of luck hon!

I have these also, but just one 1 leg so far. They got to the point where they have just been increasingly painful. So I did talk to my OB at my last appt and I have to wear compression stockings now. She said it was either that or start taking heparin shots twice a day to prevent blood clots. I have to wear pants, because they look terrible in anything else, but it really helps the pain. I mean a lot. I was able to go to a festival this weekend and had very minimal pain in my legs the whole day.

I really hope I don't have to go the compression stockings route.
