I know it probably differs from woman to woman, but how far into the pregnancy would this normally take place? I've been trying to get preg. For a few weeks now, but I won't be able to take a test for awhile yet.

Don't read this part if you don't want to hear about the veins.. Lol. I just noticed them yesterday, but I have three purplish veins on the sides of each of my breasts.. Like they look the same on each one. Almost spider vein like.. They're not blue. Any ideas? I appreciate all of your guy's input, thanks Smile

My veins started too become noticable, when my breasts started too become tender and sore.

I think that was at about 10 weeks. Could have been earlier though, because I had all my normal period symptons when I found out I was pregnant, exept the bleeding.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I only went off the pill a month ago, so if I was preg. I couldn't be that far along. I'm not sore either. You said yours were noticeable.. Were they regular blue ones or like the ones I described?

They were large blue ones, and a few smaller purple spidery ones.

The purple ones could be due too you being hot, or sweating alot around your breasts.

Thanks so much! It is only about 15 degrees around here, so I don't think they're from being too hot. Anyone else have any ideas? If not, I guess i'll just have to wait and see Smile

They are more noticable when your pregnant because the amount of blood in your body increases by like 20% or something.

My boobies did not hurt either, actually I pretty much did not have any symptoms except for an achy back and some nipple soreness.
