Swelling In Pregnancy

As we approach the warmer months, many pregnant women will experience a degree of swelling related to their pregnancy. A certain amount of swelling can be normal and is the result of increased venous pressure in the lower extremities caused by pressure of the enlarging uterus on the pelvis veins when the woman is sitting or standing, or on the inferior vena cava when the woman is lying down.


To Our Pregnant Patients

Our practice prides itself in having a diversity of professional staff to take care of you. We have encouraged our patients to see each of us on a rotating basis so that they may get to know us better. This allows the professional staff to know our patients better as well.


Normal Discharge or Vaginitis

All women normally have a vaginal discharge. Generally the discharge is of a mucus-like consistency, clear to white to a light cream in color, has no unpleasant odor, and does not itch or irritate the skin. The amount varies from woman to woman and may change within the menstrual cycle, from month to month, with pregnancy, and with age. Prescribed medications such as birth control pills, as well as over-the-counter products such as cold remedies, can also affect the amount of discharge.
