Spider Angioma

Anyone have this?

I totally do! Mine aren't as huge as the ones in the pic, but I counted 14 on my arms today. I started freaking out thinking I had some horrible disease (like liver disease), but then googled it and realized it's common in pregnancy. Woosh. I feel relieved! So just curious if anyone else has had this or currently does? Should I mention it to the doc to get bloodwork just in case it's liver disease? I mean, I don't see how I could possibly have liver disease and these just started with my pregnancy, but still!

Mine aren't so circular but they look like that. Dr just said they are common to come up during pregnancy especially if you are already prone to them. Midwife mentioned that as long as they are not red or tender it shouldn't be an issue. My mother has terrible varicose veins and spider veins, I unfortunately have the same thing. I hate it but I don't think there is much you can do.
