    Has anyone else got varicose veins? I had one when I was pregnant with my son which soon went away, this time though I have 2 and they are in a very delicate place! Feel like they are going to pop if I stand for too long!

    Anyone know how to ease them?????

    Oooo sounds nasty hun! Which delicate area are we talking...lady bits or bum? Maybe just not stand for too long? Not much help am I! I know if you get them on your legs you're not supposed to cross your legs and you need to keep the blood flowing

    have a look here, this might be of help

    I have one behind my knee at the moment which has gone lumpy. I think I'm getting them in my lady bits too! :shock:
    I'm trying to ignore them and hope they disappear after the birth!
