A temporary discoloration of blue is not a major concern. However this is caused by a position of your baby or fetus on the blood vessels in your lower extremities. This is not uncommon to happen when walking and standing sometimes an orthotic is used to change the position of the fetus on the vessels in the lower extremities. Talk to you obstetrician concerning this.
