  • I've noticed the veins on my stomach and chest really show up now that I'm pregnant. I haven't noticed it as much anywhere else.

  • Yes. Your body produces 50% more blood when you're pregnant, which makes all your veins more prominent. It's more noticeable in fair skinned women.

  • Yeah my feet and hands! My 2 year old daughter keeps asking me what that is lol. You could see them more when I'm out in the hot weather. I thought it was just me.
