Anyone got or had varicose vains in pregnancy?

Apr 6th, 2010, 23:41 PM   #1
 
I've got varicose vains at the top front of my legs ive asked my friends if theyve had or got them they said No .
Why am i getting them now?
I got them at around 20 weeks and now im getting more an ive noticed me left leg is hurting because ive been walking about but ive had to sit down for 10 mins an then walk an then sit otherwise i'll end up feeling like i want to colapse
Am i suppose to get them at 23 weeks nearly??
If i stand on me left leg it hurts an ive already got them on me right.
No one seems to have it so why am i getting them boo hoo xx

You're just one of the unfortunate hun to get them during pregnancy

They're caused by all the extra pressure pregnancy places on our veins.

Compression stockings (although not very sexy ) will really help them getting worse and take some of the pain away x
