K girlies,<br><br>
I try not to post too many "medical" questions since obviously I know to go to the doctor for anything REALLY weird.<br><br>
Anyway, I noticed today that my legs are a strange blue tint. I'm wondering what are the usual reasons for this, and whether I should go to the ER or anything.<br><br>
*Edit* Found out it's just one of my legs and it's just in certain spots. It's not fully blue, but just splotchy.<br><br>
Thanks for any info.

I get very "splotchy" when pg. It's usually quite normal. It's really noticeable when I get a little cold, or take a shower. My legs are all blue and patchy sometimes. As far as I know, it's nothing to worry about <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">. If your leg was all blue I'd worry (but I dont think it would work anymore either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ).

My legs have done that since I was a pre-teen. Doc says it's poor circulation. Just make sure not to lock your legs, or knees rather, when standing up. And if possible, get a stool and alternate putting a leg up to increase circ.! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks for the input. I noticed it went away somewhat since yesterday, but my main problem is that I've been told to walk lots, which if I need to put my legs up I can't really be doing lol.<br><br>
Anyway...figured I'd just take it easy...now if the A/C would just work I would be feeling fine.
