I have a big nasty one from my last pregnancy but I'm only 10 weeks and getting another one on the same leg!!!  I'd take a stretch  mark over ugly veins any day!!!  I'm kind of freaking out because they are popping up all over my left leg.

I have them real bad. All up and down my legs actually. the ones on my upper thighs don't really bother me although they look really bad. Its the ones on my calves that cause me problems but only when pregnant so I wear support hose and they don't bother me. when I'm not pregnant  I don't have to wear the hose because my legs feel fine.    :)

So these pictures do not do these hidous things justice.  The big blob looking thing I got with my first(I was 22) 8 years ago.  The spider vein bunches on my ankle and foot are a lot worse than the pictures show and I got them with this pregnancy.  I am currently 34 weeks.  I highly suggest getting support hose, because you do not want them getting worse.

I have them too and they hurt if im on my feet too long. They are all the way up and down my left leg. The dr told me to get support hose but its already almost 100° its too hot for hose.

They are very common during pregnancy and after.  But the difference between these and stretch marks, is that you can get rid of these.  Stretch marks are hard to get rid of once they scar.  You just have to wait till after you're done breast feeding before they'll remove them.
