I have avoided symptom spotting this month (too much going on and i'd become a wreck if i did). I was about to go in the bath, when I noticed my breasts, and how they (the right one in particular) were overly veiny! I generally notice a few veins before AF is due (which is due around monday/tuesday) but these are really bright and blue. The right one, I can see veins over and under my nipple, as well as the rest of the breast, the right one also feels a little itchy? I called OH into the bathroom with 'boobie inspection' (which he has to do weekly but doesn't mind ) and he agrees they have never looked so veiny before.
They aren't so much tender, and I can't see any growth, they feel full but with AF due so soon that doesn't surprise me. I've had no other symptons, apart from crying at OH hysterically on monday, so much that when I was putting clothes away I collapsed into a crying heap on the floor for a good half hour!!
I'm not getting my hopes up ( ), but is there any other reason for Veins to be so prominent on the breast so I can cancel them out?
A little history - i'm 23, went on the pill for 2 months when I was 19 but came off it after it caused horrible pain in my left leg (very bad circulation in the left leg and have to drink tons of Tonic water because of the quinine in it). Regular AF since age of 12, no health problems?
I've been getting shooting (only way i can think to explain it?)pains in left side of my tummy for some of the night. I've woken up about 6 times, only to find it still the wee hours of the morning (i don't drink caffeine anymore so really sleep isn't much of a problem usually) and my throat is full of phlegm that i cant get rid of but I don't feel congested as such, or that I have a cold. So understandably I have woken up feeling a little groggy and I have to go and get the bus soon, then come home, get food, then go to work, and I'm not looking forward to it...
Also, my left leg (the one I get circulation problems with) was aching last night, which usually happens mostly after AF (my OH pointed this out that it always occurs after AF).
Boobs are still veiny and left one is looking more veiny than yesterday. I looked on google about veiny boobs and also found if your abdomen/stomach looks veiny its a sign and the left side does have quite a few veins leading up to my stomach but i dont know whether they were there before cause i havent looked out for them
Thought AF was on her way but now nothing... I really do hate this part of the cycle, want af to hurry up so I can get on with trying again.
