Hi,

Over the last few weeks I’ve been developing what I’ve now figured out to be spider veins and even though even my ob-gyn said that can happen and often does happen in pregnancy, there just seem to be too many of them. On top of this, I’m noticing what really looks like a varicose vein just below my right knee. I’m currently seven months pregnant and I wouldn’t risk any kind of treatment at this point, but I can’t help but wonder what will happen after the childbirth. Will the breastfeeding make things worse? Is there any treatment for spider and  varicose veins that won’t interfere with breastfeeding? Would it help if I started wearing compression sock right now?
