Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

So, today my doc told me I have vaginal vericose veins. Has anyone else had these, and how did you get relief from the swelling and pain??

She told me to try a bag of peas as a cold compress..which sounds painfull to me. She also suggested a V2 support, however I have to chase 2 preteens around (one of which is special needs) and the V2 looks esentially like an old schoool sanitary belt with a harness. Uh, uncomfortable!! Im 28 weeks and desperate!

Your doctor should be able to give you other options for pain relief.
