I didn't get them in my last pg, but I have these terrible bulging veins now in my legs and... ugggggh... lady parts. They are painful, sort of like a bad bruise. My weight is fine, and I weigh less than I did at this point with my last pg, so that's not the issue.

Anyone else suffer with this? Why did they appear and get so bad?

Oh yes....so far this pregnancy they aren't too bad. With my other 3 I was a cocktail waitress and on my feet for 8 hours at work so i got them really bad. I used compression stockings and they helped a bit. You can also try elevating your legs for a while every day. I never had them down below, but I get them in my groin area, and that gets really uncomfortable too. A lot of it comes from circulation issues, but can also be genetic. Did your mom have them?

I was going to say that I have also heard it is genetic (which means I am doomed!). I haven't had any yet though.

I got some 3rd trimester i believe but they didn't hurt. So far so good this time. A friend of mine who just had a baby had them really bad and was worried she had a blot clot? She had to wear the compression hose and was supposed to put her feet up when not at work but i think they still bothered her pretty bad.

Working on baking baby #3!
