15 seconds of seeing stars...

I'm 37w and have been low risk all through pregnancy. Had a 'trace' of protein in past few urine tests, but with low BP has been nothing of concern.

Have had a rotten cold for the past week. Blew my nose just now and suddenly had 'stars' in my eyes - lasted about 15-20 seconds and nothing since.

Tempted to wait and if it happens again to call MAU, both otherwise just leave it be. Is this sensible or would you call in anyway?

Id call it only takes 2 mins for them to give advice or reassurance over the phone but that could be me I'm a total worrier.
I have got early stages of preeclampsia and they keep stressing to me so much to call with any visual disturbances.
I'd call just to be on the safe side. I'm sure it's all okay! flowers

I'd call now, hopefully nothing but pre-eclampsia can ramp up really quickly so definitely best to be on the safe side just in case!

Ok - going to call, just to be safe. Thanks ladies!

Midwife said to monitor symptoms and if it happens again to pop by for some checks. Hopefully it's a one off random event, but I do feel better for checking in!
