The indignities

Oh, the things you find out once you're pregnant. Sometimes I think reading ahead isn't such a smart idea.

Varicose veins, bulging in the vulva: "Legs may have the market share of varicose veins but they definitely don't have a monopoly. Varicose veins can also appear in the genital area... Called Pelvic Congestion Syndrome, or PCS, the symptoms (aside from bulging in the vulva) include chronic pelvic pain and/or abdominal pain, an achy, swollen, 'full' feeling to the pelvis area and the genitals, and sometimes pain with intercourse" (Murkoff, What To Expect When You're Expecting).
