Seeing spots when I bent over?..........

today I bent over to pick something up and when I came back up and looked around I saw a bunch of spots . This has been happening in little spurts for a few days now and IDK if this is just another weird pregnancy thing or if I should call my doctor? It looks like someone blew glitter in my eyes when it happens. (Im 30 weeks)

  • It is normal, it is from you not having enough oxygen/blood to your brain-because most of it goes to baby. :-)

  • yep normal, in addition to what pp said, moving in ceratin ways, like bending can change your blood flow(just like if you hang upside down then stand stright or stand after sitting-too fast) so the rushing of it back down makes oyu dizzy and you can see spots.

  • ithink you should tell your doctor, seeing spots is a sign of preclampsia, better be safe then sorry.
