1. Feeling blue: When baby’s on board, your vagina, labia, and cervix may look blue or purple, thanks to increased blood flow. It’s called Chadwick’s sign.
2. Out for blood: Bye-bye, period… but hello pregnancy spotting! Some bleeding or spotting is common-but always let your doctor know.
3. In vein: Not-so-fun fact: Vulvar varicose veins are a thing. The good news: They should go away within 6 weeks of delivery.
4. Just swell: That extra blood flow can make your lady parts feel full and heavy, and increase sensation. Hello, orgasms!
5. Air down there: Vaginal farts can happen more frequently during pregnancy. Just sayin’.
6. 9 month itch: Pregnancy hormones can lead to bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. Both are common-and should be treated by a doctor.
7. Nose job: Your vagina’s pH changes during pregnancy-and can lead to subtle changes in odor (and taste!).
