The previous poster is right, your veins are more visible because of the increase in blood flow that is necessary for both you and your baby to survive. The appearance of them will go away not long after delivery. I know its hard to deal with the changes your body goes through during pregnancy and it will be hard for a while after too but the blessing of a healthy baby is worth it. You will just have to come to terms with the fact that your body will never be the same as it was. It can still be great but not the same. It sounds like you are very health conscious and take great care of yourself so just keep a positive attitude, your doing great especially with your weight gaining 7lbs in 4 1/2 months is perfect! Best wishes and congratulations on your pregnancy...enjoy all the great things that go along with it and try not to focus on all the changes, pregnant women are beautiful!!!
