Dark veins breastfeeding mom

I have a question do your veins get darker when u breastfeed? Im on my 20th month and my chest vein is dark but so are my arm veins. Is this pretty normal?

It is pretty normal for breasts to become bigger and the veins to look more pronounced since there;s more blood supply to make the milk etc.

Yes this is normal so please do not worry. The colour will be gradually fading away month by month.
