If you know you are pregnant and have dark blue veins that is quite normal.
If that is the only sign you have, you may not be pregnant as it is just a sign of increased blood flow, this could be for many reasons.
I don't know how old this is but that isn't true. Having blue veins was my first sign of being pregnant with my first two kids. That was my positive test for me. So take a test and see what you get. Good luck and KUP.
Yes. You will get even more of them as your pregnancy progresses.
The veins appear dark blue due to the way the fat in your skin scatters the light that passes through. The deoxygenated blood inside the vein is dark red.
Take a test
It is an urban myth that unoxygenated blood (in veins) is blue - it is actually dark red.
The deoxygenated blod in the veins is a darker color than the bright red blood of arteries but it is more of a dark red or brown than blue colored. Veins look blue because that is the color of the vessel walls and skin.
Our blood is never blue. It is a commonly believed untruth. Blood in our veins is dark red, never blue.
it must be a rare disease. I've been a doctor for years and haven't heard of this disgusting sign before. you might wanna go check out your gross jugs.-Dr. PhinleyThere's no way that answer came from a doctor.The reason the veins become visible (they're always blue, they're carrying blood back to the heart and its oxygen that makes blood red) if they weren't before, is an increase in blood supply. This happens during pregnancy but obviously can be caused by other things. Hope that answers your question -iperu
No, the veins just appear blue due to how light passes through the skin and fat above it. The blood itself is more a very dark reddish-purple color.
No, it is dark red. The veins just appear blue/purple, through the skin and subcutaneous fat.
when blood is blue from outside actually it is not blue but reddish or dark red. The veins look blue from the outside due to the skin and fat absorbing red and yellow light, but reflecting blue.
Veins are actually more transparent than anything else. Veins appear blue due to the way the deoxygenated blood (Dark Red in color--not blue) and subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) absorb light. They absorb all colors except the blue that you see.
No. Blood is bright red when it contains oxygen and dark red when there isn't a lot of oxygen. The blue you see in veins is the vein itself.
Yes, I was.
It means your pregnant
It is not blue inside you. It is dark red or vivid red, depending on oxygenation level.The confusion may arise from the fact that veins (which contain blood) look like they are blue. These veins are actually also red, but appear blue because the hypodermisabsorbs low-frequency light, permitting only the highly energetic blue wavelengths to penetrate through to the dark vein and reflect off.
Because our blood red to dark red and when seen through skin it looks as if it is green-blue! I dont know!!??
Get a couple of over-the-counter home pregnancy tests. follow their instructions. 4 weeks after you have sex take a preg test. Look for dark deep blue lines on your breasts when you get out of the shower Take a home pregnancy test, that is the way to get the fastest results. If you mean how do you get the results the earliest in your pregnancy, then a blood test at the doctors office will detect pregnancy the earliest. Blood test at the dr.
No. De-oxygenated blood is a dark red color. It may look blue in an anatomy and physiology text book, but the authors do that to show more clearly which blood vessels, usually veins, that carry de-oxygenated blood. That is why they color them blue. And then the arteries, which usually carry oxygenated blood, are colored red. In real life, your veins look blue because of the other tissues that have pigments in them that you have to look through to see your veins. Even though they appear on the outside to be blue, in fact, on the inside they are carrying deep dark red blood. Just look at the vial of blood the next time the nurse draws some for a test. You will see that it is dark red.
If you see two lines, regardless of how light or dark, it means there are hormones in your body that are present during pregnancy. It's very unlikely to have false positives with pregnancy tests, but if you think it's wrong, you should probably make an appt with your doctor as they can give you a more accurate answer. Otherwise, congratulations on your pregnancy!
You could be or you could be and are loosing the pregnancy. Wait a week or two and retest to see what it tells you.
Blood moves away from the heart in arteries and back to the heart by the veins. Blood in the arteries is more red because it is high in oxygen. It is darker in the veins as it has lost much of it's oxygen Blood is not blue in the veins but dark red. It looks blue because of how much light the blood is absorbing, in the color spectrum blood can absorb almost any color. It can absorb red, but it actually absorbs blue, but blue can't penetrate through the skin. At times the femoral vein (in the leg) is called "big blue".
You can get dark blue from (plain) blue by adding (a small amount of) black.
Blood is always red (NEVER blue) because of hemoglobin, the main factor in blood's color. Deoxygenated hemoglobin is dark red, while oxygen enriched hemoglobin is more cherry red. The common misconception that deoxygenated blood in your veins is blue stems from textbooks that show arteries in red and veins in blue for simplicity. Also, your veins appear blue through your skin because of a variety of reasons only weakly dependent on the color of the blood. Light scattering in the skin, and the visual processing of color play roles as well. If arteries were near the skin surface, they would appear blue as well. Cameras inserted in veins during medical procedures clearly show that blood in veins is red, and when drawing blood from veins in a way that doesn't expose it to the air, it is clearly a dark red color and not blue.
No. Dark blue is a dark blue color, but navy blue is contrasted with white.
