This is really getting me down sad they are really bad and itchy, I can stand for barely 5 mins without needing to sit down. I am an active, slim, helathy person and this is really getting me down.

Does anyone have any remedies, helpful advice???

Thanks smile

No advice but my mum suffered really badly and had 3 veins removed after she had me, I have an elder sister. My legs were fine after DS who's 2 but my veins (in my legs) have started to feel raised and I'm 22wks pregnant so its something that plays on my mind a bit. They don't itch as yet but I think other than wearing support socks/tights and not standing for too long don't think there's much you can do... sad

Thankyou Millie. This is my 4th child grin
After the first and second the veins went down completely after pregnancy, I meant about a week after delivery and after the 3rd they stayed and are getting worse! I have rubbed excema cream in which helps and will have to get some support stockings!!!!
