23 wks pregnant and I have little vein like spots on me

I have little spots here and there all over my body. When I look at them close up, they look like little red veins in a bunch. Hormones by chance??

  • This happens because your body is compensating for the extra blood flow that is going to your baby. And yes the little ones like webs are called spider veins and if they are bulky and painful then you call them varicose veins.
    The spider ones usually appear on the face, neck, upper chest and arms, do not hurt and disappear shortly after delivery. (usually)

  • I got those with my first baby when I was 17, they never went away, but tanning helped a little..
