Yes: Appearance of veins and tenderness of the breasts can be signs of pregnancy. The best way to know is to take a pregnancy test.

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors but can also increase with pregnancy.
