  • Sometimes high blood pressure does that. I know because it runs in my family. I had that too (the veins popping out) when I was pregnant both times, especially the 1st time.

  • Well its one of the causes but doesn't mean its th cause in your case. The dr will tell you at your checkup if blood pressure is high. Try to not add any salt to your food or eat a lot of salty foods.

  • 2 of the main causes are due to #1 increased fluid levels in the body and #2 because baby is in the way, blood has a harder time returning to the heart and it tends to "back up" a little more. Either way, it's fairly normal and while keeping salt intake low, eating the right foods, etc can help, sometimes, that's just the way it is. :( Bummer
    Make sure to keep hydrated, though. If you don't, you can create even bigger problems.
