Anyone else have vein issues during pregnancy?
My first three pregnancies I had no issues, but I guess with age (and some weight gain) I'm not quite as well off as I used to be. My last pregnancy I got one varicose vein, although not painful, and this time around I've been getting a lot more spider veins - esp in my calves and ankles - and one new, big puffy vein by the spider veins, on the back of my calf below the knee. They aren't hurting at this point, but I'm just curious if anyone else has vein problems and what you've found might help and or prevent?
I've heard extra C, which I'm already taking, and B complex, ditto - can help. Also E, bioflavonoids, drinking enough water (need to work on this), nettles, any other ideas or actual supplement amounts that you can suggest?
