Random question but anyone getting sudden blurred vision? Had one episode is work last week but presumed it related to low blood pressure (was a busy day in work and I hadn’t eaten properly/was on ward on my feet). BUT just relaxing now in bed and it’s happened again. My light and depth perception is tainted and I’m struggling to read. Usually 20/20 vision. Had a scan on sat and baby doing well (was delighted actually as looks like they’ve grown; had been small). Currently 38+? (😅 baby 3). Scheduled for 5th.

@Shrillwaffle oh she is just precious. So many congrats to your little family xx

Just in case anyone’s worried. It’s completely gone. My Blood pressure is low (but for me that’s not unusual). Triage said if it happens again I’ll go in! Gonna try get some sleep. Pregnancy is wierd!

@Callmemummynotmaaa I actually just read a couple of days ago that pregnancy changes the pressure inside your body and it can cause our eyeballs to be squashed and not be the optimal shape for clear vision. I'd say being so close to birth it would be exacerbated too. If you're seeing floaters and stuff I'd be more worried but I think a little blurring doesn't sound so bad.

@Shrillwaffle oh how precious is baby Lena, congratulations! She is beautiful! Hope you are both doing well 💕

Mangotango39 · 29/01/2024 01:19

oh re baby names, we are having a suprise but have our names for each.

we were opposite and agreed on a heap for boys - girls were ALOT more difficult and we just have one. My mum hates it aha!

I have a feeling it is a girl but only 7 sleeps to find out x

Ebonythoughts · 29/01/2024 02:51

Congratulations!!! She is gorgeous! Hope you are both well and resting ❤️

AllAboardTootToot · 29/01/2024 04:42

@Callmemummynotmaaa yes I have had but it was more floaters and cloudy vision like @Cheetocat said. Turns out baby was pressing on nerves which trapped some fluid causing it. Once released it’s been back to normal. If you see spots or anything untoward please get it checked!

oh @Mangotango39 7 days! How exciting! ❤️

@Shrillwaffle wow! Huge congratulations and well done, you're amazing 👏
Thanks for sharing a photo, Lena is beautiful and I love her name

I went into the hospital yesterday evening at 38+1. The 'braxton Hicks' were becoming quite regular and overwhelming. Turns out I was 5cm and things progressed quickly. My perfect baby boy was born at 1am this morning. After all these years I'm finally a mom

AllAboardTootToot · 29/01/2024 05:35

Oh congratulations @LavenderSweetPea ❤️❤️❤️

You both doing well?

babythreeincoming · 29/01/2024 07:37

I really thought last night was the night for me... I had intense pains which were ramping up until 1am! Have barely slept from overthinking and keeping an eye on movements 😅 I've got my scan today to see if baby has moved so maybe this was his way of doing that 🙏🏼

Pass me the coffee ☕️💤
