Please be mindful that maybe a little too much info for some, so you have been warned! haha!
Is it normal?
My vagina feels bruised, bruised as though someone has kicked me full force between the legs. Multiple times!
As soon as I get up from a chair to walk, thats when I feel this, and whenever I walk anywhere, feels so painful walking around, pain starts as soon as I stand up! If I try to just cross my feet over, like when sat at the desk, the pain is felt with just using any muscles around that area.
I never had this with Bub #1. Bubs head is down, And I am 33 weeks pregnant but not yet lodged, unless this has happened since last Monday.
The pain gets worse as the days go by.
If anyone can offer their input, this would be great.
I sleep with a pillow between my knees for added comfort. And I sleep well. But as soon as I wake, I am back to square one

That must be awful you poor thing. If you google symphysis pubis dysfunction, does that sound like it? I had this with pregnancy and it wasn't fun but it did get better post baby.

It does sound like pubic symphisis. Mine went away as soon as baby was delivered. During pregnancy the pain was managed and even decreased by seeing a physio. Maybe get referral from your nurse or OB as there are certain movements that must be avoided and massage can also help.

This sounds very much like pelvic engorgement which is common in subsequent pregnancies and gets exponentially worse towards term.
I had it severely with babies 2 to 5 where I felt bruised and like I’d been kicked by a horse.
I had vulval varicosities that filled with blood as I stood up or got out of bed. These are not always visible to the eye but they give the symptoms you describe.
The feeling of fullness often had be thinking I was going to explode.
A couple of simple remedies that may help are wearing a Lycra type of undies with a large maternity pad to provide some pressure. Pop these on before you get out of bed in the morning.
A few witch Hazel drops sprinkled on the pad can help too.
Mention this to your doctor next visit but mine disappeared the moment I had the babies.
Good luck though....it is awful.

I had thus. I referred to it as my exploding vagina. It was a vulva varicose vein and everyone wanted to have a look at it.
I bought a vbrace. It did help.
