Varicose Veins

Hi all! I am pg for the 3rd time (12w6d). My DS is almost 8 and my DD just turned 6. So.. it's been a while since I've been down this road. I am joining the boards because I wanted to ask if anyone else was having issues with varicose veins this early?

I don't remember having issues with varicose veins until late 2nd, early 3rd tri with my first two. I have already stopped wearing heels and try to elevate my legs (particularly my right one) when I am home. It seems to be helping but I'm just concerned for later in this pg if I am already having issues now!

TIA!!

V2 Supporter for Varicose Veins

You need a product called a V2 Supporter to help quell the varicose veins early on and nip them in the bud, so to speak. The product is a compression undergarment (like tight, padded panties), that is made in the USA by a Michigan-based company called It's You Babe.



There's a great article about the condition itself here: http://blogs.health24.com/vitaminpete/vulvar-varicosities/
