I had another check-up with my OB today. Ian's heart rate was 146. Everything looks good! He moves around a lot...and I am enjoying every minute!
I'm getting more varicose veins, but the same batch are the main painful veins. I asked the doctor about it today and he said, "I'm really sorry. They're going to get a lot worse."
What?!?! OUCH! The cure: giving birth! So, after Ian gets here the varicose veins should go away...along with the pain they are causing.
Did you know that women gain 4 pounds of blood during pregnancy??? Sometimes the increased blood, along with a decrease in flow is what causes the varicose veins.
