Not likely: The size of the veins in parts of your body have much more to do with hydration status than anything else. If you are well hydrated, your veins will be full and "pop out" more. This is not a symptom associated with pregnancy. If you miss your next period and are concerned about pregnancy, get a pregnancy test. Hope this helps!
