Varicose veins during pregnancy
Varicose veins are common during pregnancy. Some resolve and some do not, unfortunately. I would speak to your ob then follow up with a vein surgeon who is board certified in vein surgery.

When you are pregnant, your blood volume doubles, your veins dilate and become more prominent. This is a normal occurrence. The veins you have look normal. I would recommend seeing a vein specialist and wearing compression hose during the pregnancy.
Veins during pregnancy.
Veins will enlarge during pregnancy. The posted picture looks like a normal distal saphenous veins that has enlarged. From the picture alone it does not look like anything to be alarmed about but the best thing to do would be to see a vein specialist for a venous evaluation and to follow you during your pregnancy.
