Pregnant, blood taken from left arm, bruise, redness, pain on applying pressure. Cure?

I had blood in my left arm taken the other day.. last Wednesday, its now Sunday. It bruised at first, and had some really darkess red (doesn t look like bruising) around it the next day, now the whole bruise, which was about 1 inch wide and goes around my arm another 2 inchs now is all red. It hurts when there is pressure on it. I m kind of worried and have no clue what it is. I m also pregnant.
