Ugh, I just noticed some unpleasant varicose veins on the back of my calf.  Am I doomed to have these forever or is there a way to reduce appearance or get rid of them and not make them worse since I still have 8 weeks left?

Massage your legs at night and just try to keep off your feet as much as possible. Mine get awful when I'm pregnant but almost go away when I'm not. It's just all the increased fluids in your body.

support hose and/or compression socks?? I've heard that can help esp. when you have to be on your feet.
