has anyone else here been diagnosed with spider naevus in pregnancy

i'm 25 weeks, and have developed these red spidery marks, all over my chest and arms, and to be quite honest it looks bloody awful, doc reckons it's quite common, but had never heard of it before. feeling really excited about new baby, as been trying for 7 years, but suffering a bit lately with reflux and no sleep, but will all be worth it in the end :-) x

Ive been reading pregnancy day by day book and it does say that you can get these spider veins. It also says in the book that these should disappear soon after birth. It recommends using foundation to cover them but that is all. hope this helps x
