    Default blue veins and not pregnant

    Anyone suddenly get very noticeable blue veins all across chest, stronger in breasts and even in areolae? We're TTC but I'm so irregular I don't know when it's 'time' to test and have gotten negative as far as a few days ago. What else could cause this? I can trace nearly the entire vein roadmap from shoulder to shoulder, down through breasts.

    Yes, this is new for me also. However; it seems I can attribute mine to the injections and projesterone pills. Not sure if you are doing medicated cycles or not.

    No the only thing I take is Metformin with a prenatal and extra follic acid right now. We're going to start further medical steps next year if nothing happens sooner but I know 'lose weight' will be the first order so I'm working on that while we enjoy the 'trying'

    Maireth--That was my first (and still my most consistent) sign of pregnancy (started at about 11DPO). Try testing again in a few days...you never know!

    Thanks Blanca I'm afraid to hope, this wouldn't be the first disappointment along the road (I can see you definitely understand!). We shall see.

    I have this off and on, and I have for years. Never been PG. Sometimes it seems to coincide with my cycle (just before AF). Sometimes it seems random.

    You're welcome! Yes, I certainly understand not wanting another disappointment. You'll get there, though! GL and let us know how it turns out!

    I don't want to get your hopes up, but I had this symptom for a week before I tested positive for both pgs. I ***hope**** you are PG!!

    I notice this after I get out of the shower. Sometimes they turn up strong, other times not so much. I've never made a note of exactly when it happens. I wouldn't put too much stock into it, to be honest. I've never been pregnant (and never will be, God willing), and I notice others are saying the same thing, so it's probably just a Thing.

    I think I have always had this, for as long as I've had breasts.

    Okay, I didn't know that blue veins could signify being pg...I have very pronouonced veins in my arms and across my chest/breast areas. I always thought it was b/c of the male hormones and they become more pronounced when I workout heavily.

    I have fair skin, so I have always been able to see some veins in my chest and arms, especially after getting heated from exercise (like you mentioned) or after a hot shower. But when it comes to pregnancy (at least mine), they are constantly there, there are a WHOLE LOT MORE of them, and they are showing up in places they haven't before (i.e., on my breasts instead of just across my upper chest, on my hips, etc.).
