I'm 39+3 and this evening have noticed that I have a blury weird thing going on to the far right. It's only affecting my peripheral vision on the right. I also have a headache. Had blood pressure checked on Friday adn it was OK. As with Confusseled there's no swelling.
Just to point out also that CSR is very rare and only a specialist would be aware of it as a potential condition as it primarily affects men-but when pregnant your cortisol levels are raised and this is what makes you vulnerable to this condition.
Thanks confusseled. I keep wondering whether it's my imagination making me think my eye is going funny. I do have a headache which I've just taken painkillers for. I am very tired, I've been driving for about 4 hours today all in.
While pregnant on dd2 my bp was fine all the way through until i got to 36wks when it suddenly shot up one evening and i had blurry vision and a migrane, i phoned the nhs direct line and they said go to the hospital by the time i got there i was blind and having fits i'd gone straight from being fine to having eclampsia, i had to have an emerg c-sec right away to relieve the sypmtoms which thankfully it did and DD and myself were ok and home in just under a wk.
Dont want to worry you just wanted to show how important it is to get any blurry vision and headaches checked right away
Blurred vision can be sign of pre-eclampsia. I had pre-eclampsia with dd and did have blurred vision but also looked like a marshmallow man and bp was really high and 4 protein in urine. If you are really worried maybe pop to and a and e and they will check your wee for protein and bp
Its crap, Ive had 4 babies and had 4 attacks of CSR-there is no treatment apart from steroids which I couldnt take as I was breast feeding. The only other option is once your vision has diminished to about 10% they will offer you laser treatment but that runs a very very high risk of complete loss of vision.
i had slightly fuzzy vision in my 1st pregnancy. early on though. some judicious googling made me realise it was to do with fluid retention -- even your eyeballs swell up a bit & that changes your focus. nice! just to reassure you that it might not be pre-eclampsia. but do please get checked out by your midwife asap.
just a quick update, I've just got back from the labour ward, my blood pressure's gone up quite high. Everything else normal, they took bloods and the lab results show liver and kidneys OK. Have to go back tomorrow to be monitored again. Thanks for advise.
Hope all is well Heinz, and good luck with however much left you have of the pg, and of course with the birth and your new LO
I looked at this thread as I find my vision goes slightly "off" just before my period (the blurry feeling is often the best indicator I have on when I'm about to come on) and wondered if I might learn something looking at this. And yes, if fluid retention can affect your eyes then that could well be what's happening in my case, so thanks HoxtonChick!
hello, just wanted to add how important it is to be checked out. i have ebeen getting blurred vision and mentioned it at my last mw appt ( i'd had my eyes checked at the optician and they could nt find anything) before i knew it, ivwas on a monitor which threw something else up and they kept me in overnight. I'm back home again now ubt have to keep an eye.
