Unfortunately I have problems with varicose veins. It started at my firs pregnancy but after my daughter was born it went away. But when I was pregnant with my son my right leg looked blue all the way and felt uncomfortable and sore. When my son was about one year old I had a surgery to remove my varicose veins but only on my right leg because the other one was fine. Back than I knew I didn’t want to be pregnant again and go through it again. But 5 years later me and my husband decided to have another baby. With the third pregnancy my varicose veins on my right leg came back and after my son was born it went away only like 50%. Now I’m waiting to get a surgery done in couple of months. I never had problem with weight and lots of people think that varicose veins have only overweight people but that’s not true. My grandad used to have really bad vv and I got it of him. I’m from Europe and living over there wasn’t such a big deal because you don’t show your legs as much as living in Australia. But now living in Australia I’m more conscious about how my legs look.
