Please help :/

I'm 7 weeks pregnant and haven't visited the doctor yet because I'm waiting on insurance. I noticed today that I've got spotted bruises all over my leg. I didn't hit anything and I guess I'm just worrying that something may be wrong. I've been taking prenatal vitamins since I found out and I don't remember this from the last pregnancy.

I guess I'm just worried because I haven't gotten to go to the doctor yet and last time I went right away. Are there any common issues with bruising during pregnancy? Should I worry?

    I found this on google. Apparently you aren't alone. I am thinking burst blood vessels from the extra pressure.
