I am not sure if it is because of my last pregnancy (dd3 is 2 months old) but I am bruising very easily on my legs and the bruises are taking forever to heal. All the veins in my legs are right at the surface. I have those spider vein things and other purple veins that you can see but you can also see little red veins. I am bruising all over my legs. My arms are not having this problem with the veins and my arm had a bruise the other day that has healed. A leg bruise that I got at the same time that was not nearly as bad has yet to heal. I am not sure if it is because of the pregnancy swelling or something more serious. Anyone else ever have this?

Sounds pretty normal IMO, you may want to try some topical Arnica gel...it's for healing bruises and the sort. You can get it at any health food store.

I do the same thing. I needed some vitamin c. Deficiency causes easy bruising and slow healing. You might google it to check for yourself.
