Blurred spot in vision!
 
I was at the grocery store a little while ago and all of a sudden I couldn't read all of my list on my phone. There was a small spot in my vision that was blurry I would look up toward the people walking toward me and couldn't see their face! The spot got a little bigger so I went ahead and left and now that I'm home it's gone and my vision seems to be fine but I still kind of feel out of it. I have a bit of a headache now right behind my eyes.

So has anyone ever experienced something like that? What could cause it??

ETA I'm 30 wks and 4 days

I had that for a while when pregnant. Something to do with changing fluid levels, I was told. It stopped after a couple of weeks. :)

Migraine. The hormonal changes in your body can cause them. I get them a lot pregnant or not.

It could also be an optical migraine. I have gotten them and that's what happened, like I couldn't see out of that eye but I could, just not right, then I could see again but had searing pain on that side for a bit, then gone. Weird but 'normal'.

I got them when I was pregnant and would become dehydrated. Drink lots of water, water and more water!

my eye doctor warned me of this and told me to call right away if this happens. but i'm not pg. :giggle: she said because i have a strong prescription i am at higher risk of retinal detachment and that can be a symptom. i'm surprised that more mamas aren't concerned with the implications of vision and blood pressure in pregnancy. i would call my doctor.

My mom and I get them, and we've always called them ocular migraines. I get them on occasion, but more likely when pregnant. I definitely end up feeling whoozey for the rest of the day, too. It's not uncommon and nothing to be worried about :)

Artifacts in vision (not typically blurry spots, but they can present that way) can be a symptom of pre-eclampsia. I'd get your blood pressure checked, even if you go to a drug store with one of those machines. If it comes back higher than normal I'd check with your OB or midwife. I only know this because it was one of the battery of questions that they asked me when I was borderline with pre-e.

Definitely call your doc/midwife!!! The first thing that comes to my mind is pre-eclampsia. Not something you want to risk going untreated!

This. I have them occasionally; more frequently when pregnant.
