You could be pregnant, but you can't diagnose yourself as being pregnant just because you have blue veins on your breast. When you can see your veins, that just means that they are closer to the outer layer of skin. The only way to be for sure that you are pregnant is to take a home pregnancy test.

Well I still can see the blue veins getting clear and my stomach hurts and my nipples are getting bigger and more senstive and darker and my stomach feels different and my husband said that i'm pregnant that he feels that I am. Thats how he knew about our daughter and he was right. But I don't want to get my hopes up and i'll find out in about a week or two and i'll let you guys know.

Basically my advice is to wait a bit longer and observe the further changes. Heh I know it's not concrete, but that's the way these things go. If you take the test too early you could still get a negative even if you are pregnant. What you describe does sound like early pregnancy symptoms, but I wouldn't say a definite. Give it some time.

Edited to say: drinking alot more water would make anyone urinate alot more... Even an old man :p

Thanks for your advice and I know that drinking alot of water makes you go to the bathroom more. But my nipples are really sore and are getting bigger and I don't have any bras on tight and they are getting darker and my stomach feels different I don't know how to explain it. But thanks for the advice. I'll just wait to take a test and i'll keep you up dated. Thanks bye

Blue veins are normal. The fact that you can see them now and couldn't earlier just means they've moved closer to your skin's surface. This can also happen when your body gets hot. The blood cools off faster when it is closer to your skins surface, lowering your overall body temperature. The blue color just means that this is one of your veins that returns blood to the heart after your body has used the oxygen. Red blood is blood that has come into contact with oxygen. When the oxygen is depleted, blood turns blue.

I Feel the Same Way Too
I'm have blue veins across my chest (not breast), my breast are sore and niplles (when they're touched too). I've had this symptom for 3 weeks now. I missed me depo injection intentionally in july, I bled for 3-months (may-august). I get leg cramps when i'm in bed, I get chills off and on. I feel that i'm pregnant too. The sore breast came on the 3rd day after we had unprotected sex (unproctected sex for 4 days in a row). You're not alone on this one.

I got blue veins on my boobs, but they went to the nipple. What i've heard is that it just means your body is doing it's job to prepare for a baby. So you could be pregnant, but you have to wait it out and test. I started getting the vein thing about two weeks after conception. Although, my positive test has come up yesterday afternoon. This morning I took one and it was negative. However, I still feel pregnant. Sometimes I think intuition speaks louder than anything else. Don't doubt yourself until you've proven it with a period. And even then make sure your acting pregnant by take prenatel pills and not smoking and such. Too many people just assume the test is right and then they start up with old habits because they don't think they are pregnant. Good luck to you! Try to wait it out though.

What Do U Think About This?
Okay pitterpatter, what do you think about my blue veins across my chest? I noticed one vein cross my breast, but due to my shade, it prevents me from pin pointing the "vein to my nipple". My breast are still sore and its going on the 3rd week. I have other sypmtoms as well... Should I wait another week or so for a hpt?

You can try one, but don't be surprised if it's negative. My veins got darker as they moved. I think if your pregnant and even if your not and you have a imbalance of some sort, your veins will become darker. However, if your dark complected you may not be able to see them as well.

Think I'm Pregnant?
it is a few days too early to take a pregnancy test but i have very dark veins on my breasts and around my nipples that i never had before..my boobs are growing and hurt alot. I've had unprotected sex 2-3 weeks ago but the past little while i've been feeling extremely tired and dizzy if i stand for too long or get up suddenly. My appetite has increased dramatically but no matter how much i eat i still get hunger pains. I'm so bloated and gross feeling and some points during the day i just cry for no reason or get really annoyed and bothered by everything. I was on b.c up until 3 days ago i stopped taking it. usually when i stop my pills in the middle i get my period. but i didnt this time. Do you think im pregnant????
