This is my 2nd pregnancy, and I did not have any signs of varicose veins with my 1st.

I read that varicose veins on your legs during pregnancy normally don't go away after pregnancy but the ones down at your vagina do...or "virginia", lol.

They are also genetic, I got them with my 1st and now they are getting worse, bigger, and more painful. I am also a waitress so I am on my feet for a very long time. I also dont have the luxuary to sit down a lift my feet every 20 mins, but at the motherhood

Girls girls. I discovered these also....on my butt and almost to my virginia as we call it in code in front of the kids if I need to use that word, haha. I was scratching my booty and felt lumps and that's what a mirror discovered.
