  • I honestly couldn't tell you. But I did have the spots thing going on in both my pregnancies and neither turned out with pre-e. I would get them if I sneezed, coughed, bent down, vacuumed, lol. I did read a while back that pregnancy does alter your vision some. It has to do with the increased blood and fluid volume. I actually couldn't use my glasses for awhile because pregnancy changed my vision.

  • a non-pregnancy related thing could be a retinal problem. idk. i just know that my eye doc said if i ever see spots or have blurry vision to get in asap because i am very near-sighted and at risk for retinal detachment.
    just an idea.
