Model A208

I’m 6 months pregnant and am starting to get weird bluish-purple veins on my legs. What are these and why am I getting them?
– Tyneesha

Varicose veins are a common, usually harmless part of pregnancy for some women. They happen when the uterus applies pressure to the large vein (the inferior vena cava) that carries blood back to the heart from your feet and legs.

Varicose veins can become itchy, uncomfortable, or even painful. They're usually found in the legs, genital area, and rectum (hemorrhoids are just a type of varicose veins).

Varicose veins tend to be hereditary — your mother or grandmother may have gotten them during pregnancy, too. So, unfortunately, there's not much you can do to prevent them.

But here are some ways to reduce varicose vein pain and avoid making the veins worse:

  • Take frequent breaks and move around as much as possible if you have to stand or sit for a while.
  • Don't cross your legs when sitting.
  • Elevate your feet often.
  • Wear maternity support hose. These special pantyhose gently compress the leg muscles and squeeze the veins to help push the blood back toward the heart. They differ from regular pantyhose because they apply gradual amounts of pressure to the leg, with the most compression at the ankle and less farther up the leg. It's important to avoid tight socks or knee-highs that squeeze at a particular spot on the leg, as this can cut off circulation.
  • Get daily low-impact exercise if your doctor says it's OK.
  • Sleep on your left side to keep the pressure off of the inferior vena cava, which is on the right side of your body.

If you notice that the veins feel hard, warm, or painful, or the skin over them looks red, call your doctor.

Varicose veins often get better after delivery, when the uterus is no longer pushing on the inferior vena cava.

Compression

Compression stockings are medical grade devices designed to move blood flow. 

Support compression stockings are made available in multiple compression support levels. Most commonly compression support stockings come in mild (8-15 mmHg), Medium (15-20 mmHg), Firm (20-30 mmHg), X-Firm (30-40 mmHg) gradient compression levels.

The benefits of Compression Therapy are plentiful and the reasons vary from person to person why you may choose to wear compression socks or stockings. As shown in the above chart, some of the most prevalent symptoms or conditions that benefit from compression therapy are:

  • Pregnancy related swelling and vein problems
  • Varicose or spider veins
  • Lymphedema or edema
  • Swelling, pain or blood clots in the lower legs, also known as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Poor circulation from sitting for long periods
  • Post-surgical and post-sclerotherapy treatment

It can even be used as a preventive measure to maintain healthy legs for someone who spends extensive amounts of time on their feet. Quite simply, when we stand still for long periods, the forces of gravity increase the pressure within the veins of the legs where the greater effects happen at the ankle and decreases gradually up the leg and body. This pressure depends on the vertical distance of the column of blood from the heart to the foot. That's why gradient compression stockings are designed with the pressure greatest at the ankle and diminishing as it moves up the leg in order to counter the effects of the higher venous pressures.

Compression therapy products are put on in the morning upon arising, which is typically before any significant swelling would occur, and then removed at night. Throughout the day the compression prevents blood from pooling in leg veins, which in turn helps your overall circulation and lessens or eliminates any leg swelling you may have.

When shopping for compression socks or stockings, it is best to measure earlier in the day before swelling builds in the legs. Measurements taken later in the day after swelling occurs may cause you to choose an item that is too large and then not effective.

There are many types of compression socks and stockings available without a prescription and they do offer wide-ranging benefits. Before wearing a compression therapy of 20 mmHg (Firm Compression) and above, it is generally recommended to consult your health care provider to find out if graduated compression stockings are right for you. If the answer is yes, they can tell you what pressure grade you should buy for maximum benefit and relief.

    I'm really happy I found this site with the maternity firm support stockings I really needed. I'm 6 months pregnant and this is a high risk pregnancy due to I have a high risk chance of blood clots. I also work full time on my feet and I'm very active. These stockings are allowing me to get real all day relief!! The fit was true to size using the measurements recommend chart. Great thickness in the material to. I will be ordering more.

    At 5 months pregnant and planning a trip that will require me to do some flying, my OB recommended I get full compression stockings for the the airplane ride. I ordered the Absolute Support™ Compression Maternity Stockings -Firm Support 20-30mm and they are GREAT! I'm 5'6" and about 198lbs at 5 months pregnant with baby #2. The stockings are thick yet breathable! I love that you feel immediate support and relief - the compression is firm but not restricting. The material reminds mRead moree of an ace bandaged BUT you can comfortable layer under yoga pants (as I do for work) or maternity jeans. I originally purchased these for an upcoming trip but began wearing them under my work uniform for a trial run. I'm an esthetician (part-time) and working 8-9hr days can really get my legs to swell up. The first time I wore my compression stockings under the work pants, I felt immediate relief, no discomfort throughout the day (except having to do the typical stocking/panty-hose adjustment pull around the crouch) and had minimal to no swelling at the end of the day! The fabric is breathable! Did NOT make me sweat! They can be a little tricky to get on at first, but you just have to work in small sections to pull them up! I ordered based on my current weight, so I say they are true to size with a little extra room in the toes/heel/crouch areas. I also think it all depends on how your body is shaped. I would say I'm thick & curvy, 5'6", 5 months pregnant, 198lb

    Runs small 0 people found this helpful

    These compressions tights are a life saver! I would not be able to stand longer than 44 minutes without these. The material is great, sturdy and strong- no runs. However, these run very small. I’m petite (110 pre-pregnancy, at 27 weeks I’m 130lbs measuring 27 cm on the belly). I quickly grew out of the medium within a month, but bought the large and on both sizes it’s waaaay too tight on the belly. I can only wear them under the belly (I fold them over). That being said I still wear them everyRead moreday because I wouldn’t be able to function without them!
