Re: Relief from terrible Vericose Veins during Pregnancy?

I don't know if this would help but I just bought a thigh compression sleeve I think it's called and I use it on my upper thigh. It does help but it makes my leg sweat. It is supposed to be for support injuries but it does velcro and provide compression support. Also taking lecithin helps (I had actually forgotten about that and dh just asked me if I was taking that this time, oops). I think there are herbs that help but not sure if they're safe during pregnancy.
What is Lecithin Mama? I have never heard of it... what does it do?
