Question: I got spider veins on my legs ..and varicose veins...is there any problem to have varicose veins during pregnancy
Answer: During pregnancy, your blood volume increases, while the rate at which blood flows from your legs to your pelvis decreases. In addition, during pregnancy the uterus puts pressure on the inferior vena cava (the vein that carries blood from the legs and feet to the heart), further contributing to varicose veins.
You may be able to prevent, or at least minimize, varicose veins while you're pregnant if you:
1.) Exercise daily. Even just a brisk walk around the block can improve your circulation.
2.) Stay within the recommended weight range for your stage of pregnancy.
3.) Elevate your feet and legs to the level of your heart or higher whenever possible. Rest your legs on a tall stool or box when you're sitting, and elevate your feet and legs with pillows when you're lying down.
4.) Don't cross your legs or ankles when sitting.
5.) Don't sit or stand for long periods of time. Take frequent breaks to move around.
You may want to try wearing graduated compression socks or stockings, which are tight at the ankle and get looser as they go up your leg, making it easier for blood to flow back up toward your heart. As a result, they help prevent swelling and may keep your varicose veins from getting worse.
Hope it helps.
