it seems to be quite a common thing during pregnancy because of the weight gain and added work needed through your blood vessels but check with your midwife next time you see her to make sure all is well.. get your feet up as much as possible too so as to aid blood flow back to the heart effectivly as the valves in your veins can become damaged and cause varicose veins. x

The only way u can help prevent them is to wear support stockings. as uncomfortable as u may find them they do help keep the blood flow and circulation working properly.
I had surgery 2wks ago to remove a varicose vein in my leg which occured during pregnancy and its bloody painful!! wish id worn the stockings whlst pregnant, i could have prevented them!!
