I finally discovered for myself what the source of that uncomfortable heaviness/pressure/etc is that I've been experiencing in my groin/perineal area--varicose veins. I've never had these before and it never occured to me that they could start bugging me in the early part of the 2nd trimester. Even the advice nurse was stumped when I called in to ask her about it. Now I've figured it out, as I finally used a mirror and took a look down there. It has been a little worse in the past few days and I wondered. Any of you have experience with this? I've just been taking a nightly warm bath in hopes of relieving some of the feeling but I wasn't sure if there was more I could do. It certainly bugs me while I'm exercising.
