Blue veins appearing under skin a positive pregnancy sign right?

I am 11.3 weeks pregnant and this is my only constant symptom.  I am just so paranoid, since I have had 2 m/c.  The veins are appearing under my skin on my chest, sides of abdomen and my legs.  I understand this is due to the increased blood supply. I guess I am just wondering how good I can feel about this symptom, we saw the heartbeat at 8.3 weeks and it was 180.  I also feel like I am starting to show--but only at night.

I think its just bloat...my pants start to tighten after lunch and by the evening theres a bump, in the morning no bump or less of a bump. Sounds like bloating to me... I have heard of alot of ladies that say they look more pregnant at night.

Most everyone gets a little bigger by the night preggo or not.  One always weights less in the morning, but if your preggo you just get a little bigger.  I bloat and by the evening after all my eating, I look like a big cow :-)

I started noticing visible veins everywhere since I have been pregnant.

I know what you mean with the night time thing. That use to happen to me all the time. I would go to bed and my belly would be big like I ate a large meal even though my stomach would be empty.  I'm not sure why it happens but, it happens.  Now, in my 24th week, my belly is biggest in the morning.

I'm 16 wks, and I show a lot more at night, because of bloat.  I totally understand what you mean. The veins in my chest are also super blue.

Just an FYI for people out there researching pregnancy symptoms, the blue veins were a good sign for me, as I had a healthy pregnancy and had a little boy.
