Varicose veins

I'm 33 weeks with my second baby and my right leg has erupted with varicose veins. I feel really unhappy about it - they aren't painful but they are all over my calf and I feel they are really ugly. I am a bit depressed at the prospect of the summer and how I will keep them covered up. However, I have read that they can fade after birth - does anyone have any experience of this or any tips? I am elevating my legs as much as poss and walking every day but obviously only going to get heavier so concerned they will get worse.

I am even less pleased with this effect of pregnancy than I was with the 23 weeks of sickness!
