“Why are my veins so blue?!” When you’re pregnant you might notice your veins get darker in color. It’s common with the increase in blood volume from the pregnancy. However, blue veins can show up on everyone and they are normal. Sometimes though, if you stare at something long enough you will end up getting an inaccurate view of it. Suddenly that pulsating vein on your thigh or hand starts getting darker and more noticeable. You will even notice people noticing it from across the street!
If it’s really that bothersome get a spray tan or apply some self tanning lotion. If it’s really, really driving you crazy there are medical procedures available that might be able to help.
