  • Yes! I had them at 20 weeks also and when I asked the doctor she said that it is all normal and now to worry too much about it except for the blurred vision. Watch that is it gets worse call the doctor

  • ive just recently started having them...drink more water...i know that sound cliche but it helps some with the dry eyes if that doesnt work u may want to look into eye drops...i dont know what causes all of these symptoms but my doc said i was fine and told me to rest more and drink more water, they've eased up some but i think its from being squished inside from the baby

  • Thanks you guys I have a doctors appointment today, I do not feel sick just really uncomfortable. I figured the sore throat and dry eyes might be from how cold I like to keep my apartment.

  • fatigue is a normal part of pregnancy wich im sure you have already discovered. and shortness of breath can even be blamed on the extra preasue the baby is putting on you can sometimes make you short of breath. heack we can even blame the the itchy eyes and sore throught on alergys or maby a cold but blury vision can oftin be a sign of blood presure problems or diabettes... sorry cant spell... either way I would just call yr doc and ask for a little check... it could be a hole lotta nada but it also could be something outt... if somethings abnormal its usualy best to ask... good luck and write me if ya feel like it... always up for someone to talk to

  • the blurred eyes may come from the dry eyes. Everything else seems normal though. Just bring up the new symptoms at your next appointment, unless they get a lot worse. At that point, call your doc.
