    Sorry, I cant help about the whole veins thing.

    But you're saying you slept with a lad and the thought of being pregnant doesn't bother you ?? You sound really young to me, is this lad your long-term boyfreind, or is it just, as you put it a lad ?? How the hell can you say being pregnant doesnt bother you, I'm assuming neither of you used protection ??

    I think that woman's veins is the last of your problems justnow.

    I would imagine they were stretch marks, which fade after time. Most women get them in pregnancy or when gaining/losing weight quickly.

    they sound like stretch marks, i dint get any on my stomach, but i got them on my boobs when pregnant - thats what happens when you go from an A cup to an E cup in the space of a few months! they are red at first but fade to white after a few months.
    apparently rubbing vitamin E cream onto your bump in pregnancy, helps prevent stretch marks.

    yeah, they definately sound like stretch marks. not everyone gets em, just depends. really skinny women are likely to get them cos there stomach is growing to such a big size in a short space of time. They do fade. I think that they could be hereditory as well, so if your mum got stretch marks when she was pregnant it is likely that you will, although not certain. Its not just pregnant people that get them anyway, putting on an excessive amount of weight in a small space of time can also give you stretch marks.
