3 Bumps

29 weeks and saw flashing lights while in the shower?

I'm 29 weeks pregnant with my second child and today while in the shower I saw flashing lights...they were multicolored and it only lasted about 45 seconds to a minute.

The water wasn't super hot and I hadn't been in the shower long when this happened.

Any ideas?

  • Did you stand up too quickly? How are you feeling now? Were there any other symptoms?

    I really don't know. But here is a bump for someone that might.

  • Nope, I'd been up and moving just don't laundry and picking up a few things and then decided to take a shower.

    I've been feeling nauseated and have had some cramping/pressure but I went to the doctor on thursday and told them about the cramping and pressure and they checked me and my cervix was still closed so I don't think the cramping is anything big.

  • That "can" be a sign of preeclampsia. However, since I'm assuming your doctor checks you every visit and the last visit was okay you may just have had one of those weird moments

  • Please tell your dr at the next appt and get your urine checked for protein. That was the first sign I had and was diagnosed with preeclampsia.

    If it happens again, if you feel funny, if you have any liver pains call your dr ASAP.

    Good luck.

  • This was one of my signs of severe preeclampsia. I had been to my ob the week before where everything was fine.

    Be sure to call your doctor, and if you can, get to a pharmacy or health clinic to get your BP checked asap.

    Good luck!
