    Well, I am 24 weeks and have heart burn and last night to really make me new year I found a varicose vein on my .....

    ive had them for weeks :( they are on my thighs only small at the moment about 2cm long but next to my strechmarks i also have there my thighs look terrible now :(
    i hear they fade after the baby is born but only way to get rid of them is surgery which can leave them looking worse!!!

    I've never heard of them on the bottom before. I've had one at the bottom of my thigh/back of my knee for ages now. The vein started getting darker about a year ago but since getting pg it's got bumpy too.
    It's not a huge shock though cos my mum and gran suffered from them terribly and apparantly they're hereditary.
    I think once you've got them, you've got them but you can have surgery if they get too bad.
