So, this will be a nice treat for all of you. I bet dinner is over (I hope) and you're getting settled; reading some blogs... Ahhh and now a contest! This contest you will absolutely want to participate in because the prize is very nice. But first I wanted to fill you in on this great addition to your pregnancy wardrobe -- Ames Walker Maternity Hose. Pregnancy can be tough on your whole body and your legs are no exception. Varicose veins aren't that uncommon during pregnancy and can be both painful and dangerous. Varicose veins will cause your veins to become swollen and even knotted; your feet and legs can ache. Some of the reasons that varicose veins are more common during pregnancy include:
- Your baby's weight puts added stress on your leg muscles and vein walls (in less technical terms -- "ouch")
- If your mama had them then you are at an increased risk yourself for varicose veins.
- Hormones! It's always something with the hormones huh. In this case Hormone changes during pregnancy can cause your veins to stretch a tad too much.
