Question about varicose veins... 29 weeks preg PHOTO

I am 21-yrs-old and 29 weeks pregnant. I just noticed a very long, protruding varicose vein on the back of my left leg. I know that varicose veins are common in pregnancy... but is something this big/long ok? Should I get it checked out by a doc?
Also, will it go away after I give birth?
