blue veins in breasts & other possible pregnancy signs

So I was in the shower this morning and I noticed that I have very prominet blue veins in my breasts that I never noticed before. I looked it up and it sounds like it is a possible sign of pregnancy for some women. With Ellie the only symptoms I had was no AF until I was about 6wks then bring on the nausea (ew). My boobs didnt get veiny looking until almost 8 months into the pregnancy. Also they feel heavy and kind of gravely? Not actual lumps mind you (i would be freaking out if that were the case) just feel like a different texture. It might be nothing but has anyone experienced this in a pregnancy before?

My final question is this. Constipation? I am normally very regular (omg tmi) but these last few days I have had some problems with "going". I dont know if that might be a pregnancy sign/symptom or maybe I just need to switch up my diet lol. Thanks in advance

Those are both symptoms I had when I was pregnant with my DD. I think the veiny boobs came a little later, but I remember it did get very noticeable lol.  I also remember being constipated right away too.  Good luck and I hope these are good signs for you!

That's one of the first signs I got was very prominent blue veins on my boobs. Even before the nausea kicked in. Good luck to you!!

I've heard nipples getting darker is a sign. Good luck!

When I was 7 wks pregnant the actual morning sickness kicked in and I still have it to this day 21 wks!!!! The bue veins in my boobs didn't start to get noticeable til roughly now 21 wks (about 5 months). Ah yes the constipation.....that started roughly after the nausea/morning sickness kicked in 7-10 wks maybe? Good Luck!!!!

I dont want to get to excited then be crushed. BUT..... I was outside speaking with a friend of mine and she had a cigarette in her hand. The smell of the cigarette smoke made me so sick :). That was a sign for me with Ellie!!! It happened last night and I was like : wait a moment....what! So I am cautious but I am getting a little excited. My boobs are a tad bigger to me (and dh) so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers

hi moms,

all of your posts are an inspiration to me...i'm a new bride at age 48, and as unbelievable as it may seem, i think i have conceived...i've been tracking signs and just this morning, the blue veins on my breast were, well, incredibly visible. I don't recall seeing them yesterday. And the metallic taste in my mouth is just yucky, but the beauty is the dream i have held in my heart all these years might finally be here. my af is due tomorrow...

thanks again for all your comments and for sharing your experiences
