I have a FUPA. :( — The Bump
February 2011 Moms

I have a FUPA. :(

The emoticon in the title is inaccurate. It's more like this: Crying

Is it just me, or is it so swollen down there that it makes your pants that fit a month or more ago NOT feel comfortable and it's obvious? I'm not talking about just labia here- though I had no idea those could get so big- I'm talking about the area between where the bump ends and where the lady crack begins. THERE. Is yours puffy and making your pants fit more uncomfortably now?

I want to cry because I only hae 8 weeks til my due date, and I don't want to shell out $ for more maternity pants when this is my last pregnancy and it's almost like a waste now! I mean, buying a new pair of pants at 4 months, sure, it's worth it- but now, in the home stretch?? 

Can I just wear a moo-moo til I deliver so no one can notice my foopa??

Re: I have a FUPA. :(

  • I have no clue if I have one.  I haven't seen my nether regions in at least 2 months.  My maternity pants have all been too big (hand-me-downs) the entire time, so those wouldn't give me a hint either.  I'll have to ask DH tonight.  "Honey, do I have a FUPA?"

  • I had a fupa before, so that's not a great measure for me... but I am with you on the worried about buying more mat pants. I've totally noticed in the last 2 weeks that they are much tighter in the non-stretchy belly portion. Thankfully my last day at my current job is next Wednesday, and I plan on wearing nothing put yoga pants, leggings and dresses for my last month and a half.

    I'll still be working, but at least it'll be from home.

    Good luck!

  • My two favorite pairs of maternity pants actually shrunk in the dryer (freakin' Duo maternity pants, seriously), so to compensate for the loss I've been wearing pairs of sweatpants that I bought for color guard in high school. At the time I was appalled by the $40 I spent on each set, but it was actually one of the best investments I have ever made. :-) I highly recommend stretchy sweatpants. They have pockets and everything.

  • Yeah, totes cried when I shaved down there and realized I was rockin the FUPA. Lame. Hasn't made pants uncomfy yet, but you are two weeks ahead of me. Perhaps this is what I have to look forward to!
  • I havent noticed.. BUT, I will look tonight after my shower.. I may have a FUPA because my pants do feel a little tighter...Confused

  • Not so much upper, but what about FLPA?  I've apparently developed varicose veins in that area and it's made everything puffier.  Ugh.  Not much I can do about it other than hope it all goes away after delivery.
