  • Mine did...they are there due to the increase of blood flow just like your areola darkening.

  • Yep, it should go away. Like the first reply said, it's just from extra blood flow to get your milk production going. Once you stop breastfeeding (or if you dont breastfeed at all) that should go back to normal.

  • I can tell you that My son is 9 months old and the veins are still very noticeable. They are actually worse now than when I was pregnant. I breastfeed and I am thinking that they will probably (hopefully) disappear when I am done breastfeeding.

  • humaniterian-- mine were dark veins and they went away a lonnng time ago, I am still nursing. Just wanted to mention that you can BF AND they can go away simultaneously.

  • My hubby always asks if he can start an IV there. He's a paramedic, go figure.
