The changes in a pregnant woman’s body include her circulatory system. Instead of just mama, it must also carry fluids for the baby, resulting in an increase of blood volume and blood pressure. As a result, you may suffer from varicose veins or spider veins.
These are also issues that may not just disappear. Sclerotherapy, a process where the troubled veins are injected with a solution, is a treatment commonly used to address such problems.
Some expecting mothers also experience red palms. If you are one of them, be aware that the color may intensify as you approach your due date. This is another result of circulatory changes, but this issue is one that is quickly and naturally resolved after delivery.
Existing conditions are often aggravated by pregnancy. For example, many women find that have episodes of eczema or cold sores more frequently and severely. Warts may grow and moles may get bigger and darker. If you have skin tags, they may multiply.
Problems that get worse when you are pregnant, often return to normal after you deliver. Others may be easily dealt with even before the baby comes. Moles will likely go back to their normal appearance, skin tags can be snipped and eczema can often be managed immediately with emollients or topical steroids.
If you were expecting all beauty blessings, don’t be too disappointed about issues you may face. Remember there is still a bundle of joy that can’t be overshadowed.
