For the past couple of days I've had a blue vein come up in my leg. If I push it, it hurts like a bruise would. All the way along the veiI. Is this varacous veins?? so far there is no swelling, no red patches and no pressure at all.

Sounds like a potential varicose vein :-/ I have had a dormant one for years and it came up as I got heavier this pregnancy. It was a bit achy and it made a couple of patches of thread veins crop up. Fortunately it has gone down a bit now, as soon as I have birth actually!

Oh great :-( the joys of it all. I have midwife tomorrow so will give her a flash if it then. No doubt she will fob me off on to my gp.

Keep an eye on it and mention to your midwife. I got varicose veins in my first pregnancy...then after my second they became infected (thrombophlebitis sp?) - they thought I'd gotten a DVT...so always best to err on the side of caution. Ah, pregnancy...so glamorous ;-) ps good excuse to put your feet up...and invest in some sexy support stockings!
