Blue Fingers

Just wondering if anyone can shed any light as to why I have blue fingers, top of hands are a normal colour as are my nails but my actual fingers & palms have a blue tinge to them, it's not painful or anything but just curious.

Have you had your blood pressure checked recently? Sounds like a circulatory problem.

I dont wanna sound belittling at all.. this just made me giggle because i had the same problem a few weeks ago. Thought it might have been something to do with the pregnancy as my palms and fingers were blue but i was warm. When my mum pointed out it was the dye coming off my jeans onto my hands i was mortified. She thought it was hillarious though!
So if you havent got new jeans on definately get it checked out. I think its raynauds syndrome or something where your hands go blue very quickly.

Hahaha tequila I was about to post the same reply! I was really panicking until someone asked me about my new jeans LOL

Needless to say I washed my hands and most of it came out smile

Not for the last few weeks, but I keep having episodes where BP keeps going very low & I almost pass out but at the moment feeling okay.
Tequila this made me giggle as I have done this before but no, no jeans today.
Not worried because I feel fine in myself & I can feel baby kicking away nonstop today but just very curious as to why. smile
