big blue veins

My hands have been hurting this afternoon, closer inspection reveals the veins on the back of my hand are very prominent, I think the medical term for this is "poor venous return". Thankfully I've never had a varicose vein, they are more common in pregnancy, so I've never found out why this is the case, but I'm guessing it's something to do with this and thus I'm assuming this is a pregnancy thing, but I really hope it's only temporarily as this ache is surprisingly annoying.
