Did anyone get these on their legs in pregnancy ?
Ive always had 1 but new ones are springing up.
I'm only 50.5kg at 15 weeks and wear my compression stockings at work but they are still there. I'm worried ill be covered in them as I get bigger.
Do they get better after pregnancy ?

I don't have any on my legs but I got the smallest one ever on the lip of my vagina (sorry TMI probably). No pain or anything. I was told it would go away.

I don't have any but my mother had a fair few over her legs that she acquired during her pregnancies. This isn't what you want to hear but if anything they got worse over the years, not better.

Bummer- I'll have to get them stripped once I'm done having babies !

Try and elevate your legs whenever you can. It may help

yeh they "go away" when I elevate my legs. As in the blood runs out and you can't see them. But when I stand and it's got they bulge a little
Unfortunately i work 12 hour shifts as a midwife on my feet all day and i think that's what caused them.

I got one on my calf when pregnant and I hate it. I'm really overweight though due to some issues which are now fixed and I hope when I lose the weight it wont look too bad.

Re: Varicose veins
I had bad spider veins in my thigh with second pregnancy that went away after birth but this time round OMG! A massive disaster of varicose and spider veins that came on at about 10 weeks. Now at 21 weeks it is traveling up my leg... I so do not want one on my 'bits' but its headed that way. So painful and all I can do is elevate my legs. I live in the North so stockings in34 degree humid heat is not an option. I feel for you!

I developed them in my second pregnancy and found they completely disappeared after he was born. They also almost disappeared after third. But in 4th pregnancy now and they are pretty bad. I wear compression stockings all the time (to the knee) even in the heat because it feels so much better and I think it stops them getting worse. x
