Answer: Hi dear, Yes,tetunus injections are required in pregnancy.post 28-36 weeks this vaccination is given to pregnant mothers. Sorry to hear about your misery.vericose veins are painful swollen veins often appear bulging out in grey or purple colour .in pregnancy it becomes worse as the amount of blood volume increases tremendously.the blood flow from leg to pelvis decreases while the pressure increases.you can try the following to get some releif: 1- try to drink plenty of water 2- reduce salt intake in diet.this will ensure no extra water retention to stress the vessels 3- daily walking 4- try some graduated compressed socks which gives support to your legs.you can wear it through out the day 5- eat plenty of fibre to decrease water retention 6-donot sit or stand in one place for long time 7- elevate your legs while sitting 8- sleep on your left side
