I have just discovered a relatively big, dark coloured bruise on my thigh. I am 6 weeks pregnant and cannot recall doing anything to justify a bruise that dark. I don't usually bruise unless I hit myself really hard. Is this a pregnancy related thing?
Looking closely its near a patch of spider veins and is quite blotchy. I have a dr appointment Friday but curious to know what could have caused it.
Is bruising more severe in pregnancy or could it mean something else?
