Blue veins on my stomach?


I looked at my stomach this morning and seen that I have blue veins on both sides of my stomach. Their not huge, puffy, or painful but it looks so ugly! Is this normal?

I think this is normal - I have seen it before! I think I will get them, since I already have veins on my stomach!! (They are light though - not obvious) But I read that it is common to get veins running up the side of the stomach, as well as stretch marks, and the dark line that goes up the centre. With my luck, I will get them all!! LOL

You have more blood pumping through your body right now. Its really normal, and although it will probably last through your pregnancy (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) it won't last forever.

Yeah, I looked it up and it said your body is working to pump more blood through your system, causing your veins to be more visible. I was just worrying because I am only 13 weeks.

But if you are thin to begin with, maybe the veins show up sooner???

when i was having my first i had really noticable veins on my bump and boobs (almost like my skin was see- through). they soon fade afterwards though.
