WTH?

I have felt really crappy this whole pregnancy. BUt right now I am having trouble focusing. There are blurry lights obscuring my vision. I felt kinda woozy (weak and pukey), so I sat down and started a sudoku puzzle- but I couldn't see straight enough to do it. Weird huh? I have had blurry vision like this before, like right before and after I pass out, but not for a while and I really don't feel like I am gonna pass out right now. Okay- sorry for the novel, I am just trying to describe what I am feeling so you can help me figure out wth is going on. Low iron? I haven't been taking prenatals all week, I have been eating fine though.

Oh My.... You should probably call your Doc/Midwife if things don't improve. I hope you get to feeling better.

Re: WTH?

Have you been tested for gest. diabetes yet. Just wondering because I have it, and they are always asking if my vision is getting blurry. Just a thought.

Re: WTH?

I wish DH was here to take care of me.
Well, I took a multi with iron in it and drank a tall glass of water. Now I am gonna lay down. I am visiting my ILs, so don't worry about my kiddos... if I pass out or something MIL is here. I am just going to tell her that I don't feel well and am laying down. She'll check on me.
I have a monster headache but the blurry vision isn't so bad anymore... Thanks ladies! Goodnight.

Re: WTH?

headache? Um, ok mama, how are your hands/feet and face?
blurred vision is one sign and headaches are another for pre-eclampsia. elevate your legs, let your mil know your not feeling good like you are already, i would call the dr on call though to let them know about both blurred vision and headache.
if your neck starts to hurt please make sure to call the dr asap

Re: WTH?

Did the headache come on after the blurry vision? When I have a migraine coming on I get 'auras', not really blurry vision, more like looking through electricity if that makes sense. I get them a lot when I am pregnant.

Re: WTH?

Thanks ladies! I think it was either low iron (hadn't been taking my prenatals) or a migraine coming on (I've had em before). About 20 mins after I took the multivitamin, the blurry vision (more like funny lights that I couldn't see through) went away and the headache began. I told MIL I wasn't feeling well and layed down with my boys. I slept all night- didn't even get up to pee - and woke up feeling fine.
I am going to start taking my prenatal vitamins again. I have a prenatal appt coming up and have my GD test scheduled right after it.
